PHENOMENAL GROWTH 



CAUSED BY 



Low Prices and Honest Representation 



How We Became the Originators of Lowest Prices on Building 
Materials of Every Description. Tersely Told in the Following 
Paragraphs. Read it and Reap the Benefit of the Information. 



LOW PRICES^ 



Usually all concerns claim to have the lowest prices. Some will dwell 
on superior purchasing facilities of some sort or another, others will 
boldly assert that they control the source of supply, still others emphasize 
upon a highly organized sales system and a few of them just say their 
prices are lowest because they are the lowest. 

This shows how easily claims can be made — on paper. Seldom are 
they backed by live, substantial proof and sound logical reasons. 



WE ARE THE ORIGINATORS 



Our past record is the best proof we can offer you as to our ability to 
maintain low prices and maintain quality simultaneously. Four -and- 
one-half-years ago, we began selling New Mill Work and Lumber in a modest 
way. That was during the height of the late financial stringency. The 
opportunity was presented to us to become the owners of large stocks, 
through the inability of the manufacturers to realize on their holdings. We 
bought it — for spot cash. Their loss was your gain, and while we profited 
to some extent, you gained the most — not temporarily, but permanently 
— and for this reason. 

These original large purchases formed the nucleus around which we have 
built our present enormous sales capacity, firmly establishing our entry 
in this special field on a broad scale. That Introduced us to the building 
fraternity In general and to YOU, small home-builder In particular, as the 
originators of lowest prices on brand new modern Mill Work and 
straight, clean cut, first-class Lumber — all NEW. 



of yours, now is the time to build. Make up you; nsi as soon as possible 
and send for our delivered prices. Never mind i: bhe bill is not entirely 
complete; this can be adjusted later as you may wish to come and see us 
personally. To delay may not be exactly dangerous, but it might prove 
decidedly unprofitable to you. The bridge of low prices is still down 
— cross it while the chance Is available. 4 J i j J 



SOME OF OUR PRICES VERY LOW 



In pursuance of our policy, only a certain safe percentage of profit 
added to the original cost will make It clear to you that you will find some 
of our Material Prices way down low and that some seem smaller than 
cost of production. Do not be persuaded that such items are below grade 
unless so described. You can depend upon our descriptions. And 
you can depend upon all Material as being of a quality brand new, spick 
and span. Some of these items reflect a saving of from 15 to 60 per 
cent, all depending upon where you are located. 



TO THOSE WHO ARE IN DOUBT ~] 



BRIDGED THE DISTANCE 



BETWEEN YOU AND HIGH PRICES 

We. could have asked much higher prices and still have allowed you a 
large saving over local dealers' prices who have not the resources at their 
command to compete with us in a buying capacity or we could have charged 
prices that some other competitive concerns charged who were then selling 
direct to consumers but such is not our policy. Every conservative 
business institution has to figure on a safe margin of profit to do business. 
We add our margin, but no more, whatever the'original cost. 

This explains that prior to the launching of our Lumber and Mill 
Work Department, your savings did not go very far towards the owner- 
ship of the coveted cottage or a sorely needed barn or corn crib. You 
were looking into the distant future. We bridged that distance between 
you and high prices, not only on Lumber and Mill Work but on all the 
rest of building materials required to complete your building operations, such 
as Hardware, Paints, Plumbing and Heating Goods, Furniture, etc., etc. 
Bargains on every page in this catalog. Consult them. 






NOW IS THE TIME TO BUILD 



If you have hesitated to begin building operations, we urge you not 
to delay any longer— for today is the day to buy Lumber and Mill Work. 
Our forest products are becoming less and less every year, and as quantity 
diminishes, the prices increase proportionately. This is the natural 
condition of things, solely governed by the law or supply and demand. There- 
fore, if you have any intentions of building at ail or know of some friend 

CHICAGO HOUSE WRECKING CO. 
35th and Iron Sts„ Chicago. 



Do not lend willing ears to others (at home or elsewhere), who would dfs.- 
suade you from getting acquainted with us. 

Some will do their level best to discourage you from even corresponding 
with us. They know that when we once make you prices, they will not 
be able to sell you. They wiU make statements contrary to every guaran- 
tee printed in this book, for no other reason than to get your order at their 
price and to maintain high prices continually. No statement too libelous, 
no method seems to be too low for some dealers and their associations. 

We do not have to resort to such means to get our orders. Not one 
word will you hear from us against any other concern's material unless 
they have been trying to "do" us. Our proposition is simply good goods, 
honest grades, low prices, a fair and square deal, and it makes no differ- 
ence to us whether you are an expert buyer or whether you do not know 
a thing about it, you can come and buy from us Just as cheap. We have 
one Price, One Treatment and One Policy, which is fair and square to all. 

A woman can come here and buy $1.00 worth of material or a complete 
house or barn just as cheap as the expert and with a feeling of absolute 
safety. We have among our satisfied customers many women customers 
who, owing to circumstances, are compelled to transact their own business. 



ENOUGH STOCK TO BUILD A CITY 



While the secret of our growth is due largely to taking advantage of 
special closing out sales, enabling us to buy very much below regular market 
prices (because that is our long suit) , the main reason of our success 
is owing to the facHnat we maintain a larger stock than anyone else engaged 
in a similar line. When we tell you that we have piled at our 40 acre plant 
about 20 Million feet of lumber, you know that it is a large amount but 
when we tell you that this stock will build 2,000 average sized homes and 
barns, you will have a correct idea of its magnitude. Think of it!— 
Enough to build two good sized towns with churches and schools, and all 
complete. 

You are neglecting the best opportunity of your life if you tail to 
promptly take advantage of our extremely low prices. 



We have consistently maintained our position far in the lead.

DO WE MAKE GOOD? 

ASK OUR CUSTOMERS. 

The following letters are published for the beneft of those who are in doubt as to whether the promises we make 
in our Catalog are over drawn or not. Read what they say. They speak for themselves. THEY SPEAK MORE 
ELOQUENTLY for us than we would dare speak for ourselves. We are thankful for such letters, as it shows 
us that our money-saving ability is appreciated by our customers. They are unsolicited and should convince 
you more than mere advertisements and statements made by would-be competitors to belittle our reputation. 



WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF OTHER TESTIMONIALS and photographs and letters from customers who built with our material ai 
their own idea and who saved money on their purchases, and can show any customer any quantity of such photographs upon his perso 
visit to our Plant. We do not ask our customers for testimonials. We feel that every customer has a right to receive material as good 
better than represented, as well as courteous treatment, prompt shipment, and an immediate adjustment of any complaint. It is < 
aim to fill each and every order correctly. Every means is taken to prevent errors. Every effort is made to understand correctly a c 
tomer's wants. 

MQTP — ^ e do not reproduce the Post Office address of the customers for the reason, first, to prevent unscrupulous would-be competitors and memoorj 
11 v i Btm the various Lumber Trust Dealers Associations from writing anonymous letters, causing our customers a lot of unnecessary correspondence. £ 
ond, to protect our customers from the merely curious. To anyone showing sufficient interest and an honest intention to purchase, we will be pleased to 1 
nish the Post-office addresses of any or all that may be requested.

SAVED $50O. 



-, Pa. 



Chicago House Wrecking Co., Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sirs: — Today I forward under separate 
cover, the photographs of my double houses that I 
built from your Plan No. 143 with variations I 
utilized the third floor for two sleeping chambers, 
giving five instead of three chambers to each house. 

The Bill of Material was received in good con- 
dition. I find that there is a saving of $500.00 in a 
double house like I built by getting the Material 
from you or getting the material in a retail way 
from local dealers also saves many delays and a big 
lot of worriment and poor stock. 

If I should build more houses, I shall certainly get 
the material from Chicago House Wrecking Co. 

I wish you could inspect my houses personally; 
as I fell very proud of them. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed), Moses H, Snavely. 



BETTER THAN EXPECTED. 



-, Mich. 

Gentlemen: — 1 received my carload of lumber 
No. 25484 in good condition and a far better grade of 
lumber than I expected and I am well satisfied. 
Thsre have been some of my neighbors here and 
looked the lumber over and are well pleased with 
it. I will recommend your lumber to anyone I 
know who is going to build. 

(Signed). Riley Merriman. 

SAVED $200 to $300. 

, Ohio. 

Chicago House Wrecking Co .* Chicago, 111. 

Gentlemen: — I have got my house ready for the 
plastering and will say that I am more than pleased 
with it and I am satisfied that I saved from $200 to 
$300 by getting my lumber from your firm. 

(Signed), Walter Huff. 

BARN DESIGN No. 221. 



, Missouri. 

Chicago House Wrecking 
Co., Chicago, 111. 
Gentlemen: — Several 
months ago, I purchased 
from you a bill of lumber 
for a barn. The order 
was filled in a manner 
that was entirely satis- 
factory and everything 
was as you represented it. It was for barn design 
No 221. 

(Signed), JOHN E. RYLAND. 

NOT A NAIL MISSING. 




-, m. 

Chicago House Wrecking Co., Chicago, HI. 

Dear Sirs: — Please excuse my delay in writing 
you in regard to my shipment. 

I received the goods last week and I want you to 
know that I am very pleased with same. 

The order was so well filled that I honestly do not 
believe there was even one nail missing. The 
lumber was better than most anything I can get 
around here regardless of price. Also the goods 
arrived here on time right to the very hour. Now I 
will close so as not to take up any more of your time. 
I also wish to say that I think this order will make 
a pretty good ad around here. 

I will send in another order in a few weeks. 
Yours respectfully, 
John A. Johnson. 



"HALF PRICE.' 



-, Ohio. 



Chicago House Wrecking Co., Chicago, 111. 

Dear Sirs: — I got my car of lumber sometime ago 
I had ten men to help me haul it and they all say 
they do not understand how you people can sell 
such good lumber for half the price that our home 
dealers ask for it. These men would ask me what 
I paid for this or that, in fact, I had to tell the price 
of everything, and when I did they started to laugh 
and just as much called me a liar, cause they claimed 
you could not sell lumber that cheap. 

That ship lap I got of you is $27.50 per thousand 
here, that quarter sawed flooring is $45.00 per 
thousand here andso you see I got mine for half the 
price they ask here. That is what these fellows 
could not see. One of neighbors is going to 

build a barn next summer and by the way he talks 
now he will give you an order for lumber. 

Yours truly, 
(Signed), Ed. Beaumel. 



SAVED SO PER CENT. 



-. S. Dak. 
Chicago House Wrecking Co., Chicago, 111. 

Gentlemen: — The bill of lumber throughout was 
better than I expected. I shall advertise your 
lumber to all who intend building as I know they 
will get a square deal and save at least 50% on 
their bill. The lumber you sent me was exactly 
what I ordered. 

(Signed), A. F. Ferris. 



"FAIRNESS AND GREAT SAVING." 



. N. Y. 

Chicago House Wrecking Co., Chicago, II 1 . 

Gentlemen: — The car of lumber or mill work, both 
of which I purchased from you arrived. Thanks 
for your promptness and careful attention of same. 

Our dealer had a car right along side mine and 
unloaded at the same time. Well, gentlemen, you 
ought to have seen the expression on their faces — 
all amazement. They could scarcely believe 
what they saw, and when I told them the prices 
they were dumb founded, while I was all smiles. The 
first of September my carpenter laid the sills, and 
such sills! He could scarcely believe it himself, 
and to work the lumber, he said was like eating pie. 

You may use any part of this letter you choose 
or refer them to me and I will gladly tell all of 
your kind treatment and fairness and of your great 
saving to the working man that wants to build 
himself a home. 

(Signed), FRANK J. DIXON.

waiting your answer on No. 6 you will soon get 
another order, possibly two. Thanking you in

We have spent a fortune in perfecting our Plan Book. The result is the most nractical 
and most accurate book of its kind— an ideal Book of Plans. Our Designs^are so eood 
that they have been and will be copied, but they never were and never will be surmised

PRICES TRUSTWORTHY AND DEPENDABLE 



Prices in our Plan Book are reliable and fair. As clearly stated, they are free on board

along in various shipments, Millwork from one place, Hardware from another, something else 
from somewhere efse and the lumber— THE LUMBER, which is needed first— arriving 
after all the other material is on the ground. -"nvms

not keep you in the dark regarding our supplies, removing any doubt which you may have 
about where the material is coming from and how it will be shipped and how long it will

VALUABLE FACTS 



INFORMATION ABOUT 



FREIGHT, BREAKAGE, TERMS, ETC. 



FREIGHT CHARGES 



z} 



Freight charges are very reasonable on Mill Work whether shipped in small 
or large quantities. Frieght is the cheapest way of shipping material. 
Do not listen to local prophets who claim to know everything about freight, 
etc. If you have any doubt whatever of what ihaterial will cost you delivered 
at your Station, write us, and we will name you a delivered price promptly* 
thus there will be no guess-work. If the order is only a small order, it will 
not be necessary fo» you to do this. 

EXAMPLE 

Here is an example of how cheap freight charges really are. Take for 
instance, the freight charges on 2 windows and 2 doors, weighing about 100 
lbs. would be only 60c were they shipped all the way from Chicago to New 
York City which is nearly a thousand miles. 

Our prices are so low that the matter of freight charges is offset at once. 

Tour local dealer must pay freight also, therefore any argument 
against high freight rates is knocked out. 



SHIPPING FACILITIES: 



Unlike practically all our competitors we do not ship Mill Work from one 
locality and Lumber from another, neither of the items coming from the Plant 
from which they are advertised, but on the contrary, all our Mill Workf and 
Lumber is shipped right from our Chicago Plant where you can come and 
see the material loaded and inspect it while you wait and make your 
own selection. Chicago shipments not only give you the benefit of the very 
lowest freight charges, but saves you making frequent trips to the 
Depots. Carpenters and contractors who have suffered experiences of this 
sort will appreciate this information and act accordingly— if they are wise. 
CAPACITY 

We have a capacity of handling 50 carloads a day, thousands and thousands 
less than carload shipments, and where Mill Work is ordered to be shipped 
with lumber or in large quantities, we have the further advantage of being 
able to include in the carload, hardware, paint, furniture, plumbing, 
heating, merchandise of all kinds that we handle, so as to get the same 
rate of freight on all items taking the same classification as lumber and so 
that all your material will reach you in one car, in good condition and at one 
time. We have few direct factory shipments, practically the only items 
being mantles and fireplace fixtures and these are shipped direct from 
factory to the advantage of the customer as far as price is concerned. 



RUSH ORDERS 



SPECIAL attention will be paid to customers who must have their 
material shipped at once. Mention the date upon which you wish them 
and unless the material has to be made up of special stock, we will do our 
level best to see that the material is shipped in the time specified by you 
as we gain absolutely nothing by delaying your order a moment longer than is 
necessary or a moment longer than is desired by you and we gain a whole 
lot by shipping your order when you want It, and therefore we are anxious 
at all times to do the very best we can for you. 



■= SPECIAL OR ODD MILLWORK = 



While it is to your Interests to confine your order in all cases to regular 
stock sizes as listed in this catalog sometimes special items cannot be avoided, 
nor will we avoid them. On the contrary we welcome your request 
for prices on Specialties, under the condition that you furnish us an 
Itemized list showing just what you will require, so that we will have 
definite information to figure on, enabling us to base our figures right down 
to rock-bottom and thereby secure tangible results. 

However, we cannot save you as much money as on stock goods, neither 
can we offer as prompt shipments, nor can anyone else. Odd stuff is 
odd stuff the entire country over, and it frequently happens that you have 
to pay abnormal prices. Our protective price policy shields you from 
such overcharges, for you can depend with absolute safety upon any 
special price that we quote, as being the lowest you can obtain special mill- 
work for, because we understand mill work values as well as some of the 
others and better than most of the others. 



=PLAIN PACKING-LABELS: 



We use plain labels on all our packages. Our name does not appear on 
same. It is no one's business but your own where your material comes from. 



ABOUT BREAKAGE AND DAMAGE IN TRANSIT 



OUR EXTENSIVE LINE = 



While we list in this Mill Work Catalogue a most complete line of mill- 
work of every description, it does not cover by any means all the different 
kinds of material that we can supply. Practically all of the goods listed is 
carried in stock, and material to complete any average home can be selected 
therefrom without being limited in choice or confined to that sameness in 
style so much seen in other catalogues. 



TO CARPENTERS AND BUILDERS 



We solicit a thorough comparison of our prices and qualities by YOTJ 
who are thoroughly posted on values and prices. We have among our cust- 
tomers many contractors, builders and carpenters who purchase their 
own material and we ami to help such customers in everj possible manner to 
transact their business with the least possible worry, trouble or delay of 
any Kind and ail we want is a trial order to prove thia

35th and Iron Sts., Chicago. 



Before giving a receipt to the Railroad Company for articles covered 
by our freight receipt please examine every package carefully. In case any 
articles are missing or broken, report the same to the freight agent before 
removing goods. When you pay the freight, require the agent to note 
the extent of the damage or of the missing articles on the face of the 
paid freight bill. 

If you believe that an error has been made in weight as shown in 
the expense bill, ask the agent to weigh the goods, and if it is found that 
the shipment is billed overweight he will correct the error. 

In case of breakage, shortage^or overcharge make your claim on the 
Railroad Company at once, as you are the owner of the goods. 

If you want us to make claim for you, mail us the invoice and orig- 
inal paid freight bill, showing the shortage or breakage noted on such bill. 
(Get the agent to give you a duplicate of such freight bill, which retain, in 
case original gets lost in mail.) 

If you want to' order of us parts to replace damaged goods, or 
shortage, please state with your order all particulars, and from which ship- 
ment, giving date and number of our invoice. 

When we agree to prepay freight, and shipment arrives at your 
station with charges to collect, in order to avoid storage charges wnile 
corresponding, pay freight charges and return the freight receipt showint 
the amount paid, and on receipt of same we will send you a check withou 
delay for the amount paid, and assume the claim against the Railroad Com 
pany for double collection. 



: TERMS: 



Our established terms are cash with order, and where it is at all convenient 
for a customer to remit in this way, it will mean a saving in time and expense 
to the customer, as there will be no C. O. D. collection or return charges to be 
taken care of. If, -however, the customer does not feel safe in sending 
remittance in full, he may send 25% of the amount of order and material will 
be shipped C. O. D. for the balance. Where Mill Work or lumber is ordered in 
carload lots we will ship under our "GUARANTEE PAYMENT SYSTEM" 
without one cent down from customer and give him 5 days or more time 
in which to unload and inspect the stock. This method is all that can b« 
asked by any fair-minded customer. 

Send us a trial Order, Let us Convince You. 7 



Freight Charges on Millwork and Lumber are Low 



V^ERY -reasonable indeed are the freight rates on building material of every description, as 
▼ clearly explained on this and next page, in easily read, and condensed form, so that any one 
tM no matter where located, can figure very closely and prove to his own satisfaction that freight 
rates are nominal. As some articles are more costly than others, also as some require greater care 
in handling, the railroads naturally grade their charges accordingly so that a hundred pounds of 
common panel doors can be transported cheaper to most sections than a hundred pounds of glazed 
windows. Freight charges also vary more or less, depending upon the locality. For instance 
common pine doors take fourth class to all points except Eastern territory on which third class 
rates apply. therefore, the railroads issue from time to time what they call a tariff or freight 
classification from which we have compiled the following table, showing four different freight 
gradmgs or classes: West, South, East and Illinois.

TENNYSON

EMERSON 



The Sanitary Door — T 



Nothing is so conducive to a pleasant and congenial home atmosphere 
as artistic harmonious surroundings and while many of the comparatively 
better class of home-loving folks have learned to arrange successfully the fur- 
niture details and garden spots, very few homes there are where the important 
feature of the doors, windows and other items of building equipment 
has not been neglected. Since the greater majority are not placed m position 
to acquire the requisite information, it is not due entirely to lack of artistic 
temperament, but rather because the selection has been made haphazard 
and in many cases left to others, who were either uninterested or not sufficient- 
ly familiar with the subject to produce the desired genteel elite effect — sub- 
servient to good taste. 



ie Door of The Future. 



The "Tenyson" should be used mainly as a front door. The "Bryant** 
makes a perfect match for the vestibule but may also be used a sa front door. 
The "Emerson** would naturally be used as an interior door exclusively. 

Flush doors have a perfectly plain surface, hence* the commercial term 
"Flush Door/* They present a smooth, even exterior and interior — gather- 
ing no dust or dirt, in short — make the ideal sanitary door. 

The "Emerson" door claims exclusive title as the "Slab Door'*, so called 
because it portrays, to all superficial appearance, nothing but a slab cut from 
a beautifully grained logr but revealing upon closer inspection the handi- 
craft of master workmen, improving upon the work of nature through the 
stages of evolution aided by modern machinery and labor-saving equipment.

The veneering process of our Flush Doors is so unusual, so different from other methods, that it 
produces a door much stronger than an ordinary solid paneled door — a door which cannot warp 
The regular veneered doors are made 3 ply whereas the Flush Boors are made 5 ply, that is, besides 
the center core or base it contains a double layer of veneer on both sides of the core, the inner layer 
running crosswise, the core itself being thus protected in double fashion, making it impossible for 
the door to swell, shrink, crack or warp. This is the only safe way to make a Flush Door, so that 
we can without fear guarantee them to give absolute satisfaction, providing the usual care is taken 
when installing them. Doors should be given a coat of "filler" immediately upon receipt of same.

Our "Mission'* and other Veneered Hardwood Doors shown in 
this book — representing as they truly do — the highest type of Modern 
Door Making, are handled at our plant with greater care than seems 
necessary and they should receive equal care at your hands. If they are 
put into the building during cold, damp or rainy weather, there is a 
chance that the pores of the wood will absorb more or less moisture. A 
safe precaution is to give them a;coat of filler upon arrival and paint top 
and bottom edges. While this will close the pores, they should not 
be placed into the building until the plastered side walls and ceilings are 
thoroughly dry. Artificial heat should be used to dry out the building 
whenever possible, no matter at what time of the year. You cannot be 
too particular in this respect with any Veneered Door, no matter from 
whom you buy. But we can give you positive assurance that if properly 
handled, i. e., if our instructions are followed, our doors will prove to 
give better satisfaction, both as to wearing qualities and appearance. 
You will neither be disappointed with the quality nor the price paid, and 
our prices are as low as this high standard can be purchased for.

Our Hardwood Veneered Doors are of better than standard construction. 
The core or inside is interlocked with "Dove- tailed" joints, impossible to 
come apart after they are once locked. The 3 ply panels are so constructed 
that the grain of the wood in the inner section runs in opposite direction to 
the outer layers. 

The "Mozart" and "Gladstone" Doors make very neat and substan- 
tial front doors and are especially desirable where one does not want the full 
length glass effect and at the same time retain the benefit of plenty of light. 



The panel effect in both "Mozart" and "Gladstone" is somewhat unu 
sual — different from the ordinary paneled front doors on account of the wid< 
embossed moulding. 

The "Rembrandt" Door is quoted with clear double strength "A" glass 
clear Beveled Plate and with colored art. The color scheme combines an 
artist's selection of variegated Cathedral, Iridescent and Opalescent blend 
ing. No one else has anything like it, regardless of price. 



'Rembrandt" Makes a Very Appropriate Front Door in Bungalows.

Hardwood Front Doors

ENDURING 



A Beautiful Front Door Reflects The Owners Good Taste 



IMPRESSIVE 



The designs of Hardwood Front Doors adorning this page are not over- 
drawn, that is, they are as near the original product as pictures can make them 
true to detail. Regular flat sawed veneers could not produce the flaky, curly 
grain. The improved rotary cut process employed by us makes the ordinary 
Birch resemble very closely the higher priced curly birch. In Oak Doors, 
most people would prefer this method of veneering to the finest quarter- 
sawed oak. But this is not the only modern improvement which distinguishes 
our doors from the common variety. They show an absence of that sameness 
in style and shape so much seen in other doors of a similar line. They are 



different. That's it. Built different and built better. While this import- 
ant feature makes our doors more valuable and worth at least 25 per cent 
more than the usual rotary veneered doors, our prices are actually on par 
and even lower than the cream of the others can be bought for. For this 
reason, we do not depend upon descriptive wording or pictures to sell our 
doors (the flower of the door makers craft), but our ability to undersell is 
only another illustration of this company's progress! veness, for no one would 
dare to offer doors of this character at such extremely low figures. You 
have the opportunity to take advantage of a great bargain— grasp it.

GENTEEL 



Beautify and Harmonize the Interior high-class 



Modern Interior Doors are an important adjunct to the well appointed 
home and should harmonize with the exterior, especially with the front 
door A perfect match can be made by the wide variety we offer. Have 
no fear that the large panels will warp out of shape because there is no 
warp in their shape. These panels are laminated, that is, built up from 
several layers of veneer and core, the grain of the cores running in opposite 
directions. Thus one layer counteracts the working of the other layer next 
to' it and the result is a continuous, straight non-warping panel. This is 
true of the stiles and rails also, except they being heavier, the inner layer or 
core is very much thicker. 



Only the highest grade of workmanship enters into the construction of a 
our hardwood Doors, are as beautifully flaked and figured as the front doors 
therefore not only will permit the finishing in the natural wood alone, but 
thev can be stained to imitate practically any of the higher priced woods, 
such as Mahogany, Cherry, Rosewood and Walnut. Also to resemble very 
closely forest-green, mission or weathered oak. The Birch Doors being 
naturally very close grained, will take the finest egg-shell and white enamel 

, Our prices are low. Crated securely, we guarantee them to reach you 
in the same perfect condition as they leave the factory. Depend on it.

Important 

It is not necessary that 
birch trim be used with birch 
doors, if you intend to use a 
modern Mission stain, because 
our yellow pine trim can be 
harmonized perfectly with 
the birch, bringing out the 
natural grain and obtaining 
a uniform color combination. 

A great many of our 
customers are changing 
their original plans, as far as 
the first floor is concerned, 
b.y using these low priced 
birch doors and yellow pine 
trim and none of our custom- 
ers who have made this 
change, have regretted the 
expenditure of this small 
additional cost, nor win 
you.

Modern High Grade Front Doors 



" The Soft Pine Front Door =The People's Choice » 

NO HIGHER GRADE MADE :: :: NONE MORE UP-TO-DATE 



Our fire line of Soft Pine Front Doors cannot be equalled for durability 
and wearing qualities. Weather defying in the greatest possible measure, 
you cannot possibly get greater money measure. Of solid, substantial 
construction, they resist the element's powers of destruction. 

You want a door that is strictly first-class, a door that not only will class 
first at the start in the highest rank, but a door that will be in the race to 
the last, a door on which you can bank. 



If you are a judge of door value you know that our doors represent more 
value than the price we ask. Having studied the door question ourselves 
from all sides and angles, the question remains with you, not whether you 
should buy this door or whether you should buy that door, but rather 
whether you should buy a good door. You have the pictures of such doors 
before you, actual photographs. 

A Higher Grade Door at a lower Grade Price. 

You cannot make a mistake, whatever your choice — you will choose a 
good door — at a low price.

First Quality 
Soft Clear Pine 

Here is portrayed a quartet 
of door^ values not to be ex- 
celled in quality and im- 
possible to match in price. 
'Goldenrod'* with oval glass, 
glazed plain, as illustrated or 
beveled plate is a decorative 
addition to any residence. 
Our "Honeysuckle'* door is a 
plain design, well built to 
support the full length glass.

artistic moulding all around 
and will be quite appropriate 
for some styles of houses. 
Look at the picture of our 
"Pond Lily" door and con- 
sider the remarkable bargain 
we offer. A very pretty little 
water scene is depicted in the 
glass design shown in illus- 
tration. 

Taking quality and price 
into consideration, we are 
confident that this page of 
door values cannot be dupli- 
cated. Will take any kind 
of finish — oil, paint or enamel.

Slash Grain Fir Interior Doors 



Crowning Achievement of Doormaking. Straight Grain Stiles and Rails— Beautiful Slash Grain Panels 

Nearly all sections of the Fir lumber region produce about the same variety of Fir and if any certain brand is more 
adaptable to the door maker's craft than another, the species known as DOUGLAS FIR captures the crown. 

OUR FIR DOOR ^ are 1 ? [iacle with straight grain stiles and rails (best for strength) and with slash grain panels (preferred for beauty) thus 
Y , , „ , V u ■ ■ i • for mmg that rare combination of Power and Style. Straight grain resists all warping and twisting tendencies. Panels in 

the land 2 panel doors being laminated or built-up prevents them from shrinkage and curling out of shape, because the built-up process of three layers with 
the grain running .in opposite directions which cannot help but keep them straight. Panels in the 5 Cross Panel Doors are thick solid raised panels, not flat as 
shown in picture.

Reproductions on this page were taken after the doors were treated with Mahogany stain, bringing out the tiniest curls of the slash grain in the panels, 
blending gracefully with the soft tones of the straight wood stiles. Fir Doors being finished i n this manner, show up to much better advantage than if varnished 
natural. All first quality, A-No. 1, Clear Stock.

"Poppy" 



Dandelion" 



Painted a High Gloss Finish, 
or Grained Imitation Quarter- 
Sawed Oak 

First class material is the only kind that should be used in a door to be 
finished in the usual way — that is to say, natural — oil, stain or varnish. 
Sound, second-grade lumber is all right for door manufacture if the defects 
are properly covered up as in our painted and grained doors shown here. 
The process we use in finishing these doors is the best known to the trade 
and the coating that is applied can be guaranteed to last as long as the 
door itself. Our painted doors are given a high gloss finish and our grained 
doors are a close imitation of quarter-sawed oak. Painted doors are 
recommended only in cheap houses. A grained sash door answers the 
purpose quite satisfactorily as a rear outside door in even a high class 
residence. 

Note. — These doors are not second hand doors repainted, but made 
from bright new lumber, manufactured alongside our A quality doors, 
guaranteed to prove as strong and lasting as any other new painted and 
grained doors, no matter by whom made or sold. 

The flowered glass is as carefully worked and shaded as the other sand- 
blast patterns shown in the A Quality doors. The glass is set in the doors 
with the same care. Nothing has been slighted to cheapen the cost and 
they are offered to you at almost cost.

Sash Doors 

Real Bargains — Painted or Grained 

Whatever the low prices named on these three doors may indicate to 
you, do not be persuaded or make yourself believe that they are not 
good values. As explained above, such surplus stock of lumber as will 
not work up to a higher grade is used for the manufacture of these new 
doors rather than cut it up into smaller pieces for boxes, etc., and the 
price has been kept down to whatever price the box lumber ordinarily 
would bring, plus the additional cost of manufacturing. 

Remember now, please, that the off-grade is a drawback only because 
being painted, they cannot be used for oil finishing purposes, but if you 
intend to paint your woodwork anyway, you not only buy them so much 
cheaper here but save the price of paint and labor as well. This is a 
double saving. Do you see it that way? Then get in the. money saving, 
economical and rock bottom class.

Big Values in Painted and Grained Doors 

We Make Only One Grade— The Best That Good Workman and Material Can Produce 

By a remarkable process^ of finishing, material (which is not sufficiently high grade to put in a first-class door) is used, and by 
covering up the defects with a permanent coat of specially prepared paint or graining color, a good looking, solid and substantial 
door is the result. For practical purposes our painted and grained doors are plenty good enough as they are well-built, strong 
and durable. Our Painted Doors are given a smooth finish coat of solid color. Our Grained' Doors are finished in a very close 
imitation of beautifully figured oak.

Soft White Pine Stiles 

and Rails with 

Yellow Pine Panels 



Superior Quality— Best Workmanship 

Our superior doors made with Yellow Pine panels and white 
soft pine stiles and rails (which form the rim around the panels), 
have always been a great favorite wherever a particular job of oil 
finishing or natural finishing was wanted. The reason for this is 
plain, because it is customary to select all the lumber for this class 
of doors and are listed only, therefore, in one grade, strictly for oil 
finishing purposes. As shown in the two illustrations the somewhat 
darker shade on the panels form a very pleasing contrast with the 
whiteness of the surrounding rim, but the difference in the shade 
may not be quite as prominent in the actual doors, as shown in the 
design. It is very difficult to picture the exact contrast. 

These are the doors that we usually furnish in connection with 
our other high grade material for our regular and special house 
designs, unless the specifications are changed to another kind of 
wood. 

Being a thorough, first class door as to quality of material, the 
same thoroughness has been carried out in their manufacture; all 
a cross pieces being blind-tenoned into the stiles or side pieces, and 
panels of good thickness.

Quantity and Quality in Abundance 

We aim to carry in stock all sizes, thicknesses and grades of doors on this page so you may expect prompt shipment. 



By the term A." Quality, we mean the best of clear, selected stock of the 
highest grade, suitable for any style of finish. We get our " B" Quality doors 
by a careful regradmg of our "A" doors, as we occasionally sort out some 
which are not quite up to standard. Thus our "B" doors run much better 
than the ordinary B" grade which admits of certain defects. Of course 
we do not recommend our ' B" doors for Oil Finish but thev certainly 
are Cracker Jack ■ doors to paint or enamel and are all right for stain 
finish. 



We also list here C quality Four Panel Doors. This grade is intended 
for Famt finish. Recommended for cheap jobs only. Small, tight knots and 
other defects are permitted, but C' 1 doors are well made, all joints mortised 
and tenoned the same as our higher grades. Now, remember, in ordering 
doors, always specify A 1 ' quality for a good oil finish job. The "B" grade is 
all right for nice work in Paint and stain. We know that our prices cannot 
possibly stand m the way of making the best selection, as we are offering 
High Grade Doors for less than they can be obtained elsewhere. 
We teel satisfied that grade for grade our very low prices on these doors cannot be duplicated

Durable Store Doors 

The three best designs in store doors are shown on this and the opposite page. We 
make our store doors extra heavy, one and three-quarter inches thick and use selected 
"A" grade stock in manufacturing them. Our " Premium" store door illustrated here, 
is glazed and divided in two lights as shown. This door is used in store fronts 
such as our design No. 10-E-567 (See above) and matches two-light or four-light store 
sash. Store doors are usually sold in pairs. However, we price them singly so that 
it may be understood that a single door can be purchased.

Store Doors— Built to Last 




Our "Winner" Store Door has proved 
popular seller and is adapted to store 
fronts of almost any style. The 
"Merchant" Store Door has an extra 
long glass with no panel below. These 
doors are furnished in 1^ inches thick- 
ness only, as for the purpose a strong, 
heavy door should be used. Selected, 
thoroughly seasoned "A" grade lumber 
goes into our store doors. We would 
not recommend a lower quality for the 
purpose, as a door used for store 
entrance naturally is subjected to con- 
siderable hard usage and must be good 
stock to stand the wear and tear. We 
make our store doors in the same way 
that all of our high grade doors are 
made and offer the best that skilled 
workmen aided by modern machinery 
can produce.

HIGH GRADE. 



CORRECTLY BUILT 




MAKE YOUR HOME COMPLETE 



TO WOMEN IN PARTICULAR 

Consoles No Longer a Luxury 

Every woman recognizes at once the many advantages of having a 
full length mirrored Console in her home. A great many already have 
them. Others admire them and desire to possess one, but consider it a 
luxury far beyond them. You may be one of the latter class, and it is for 
you these remarks are intended. At our low prices, Consoles of classic de- 
sign and highest grade are now within your reach. Since we have inaugur- 
ated our one-profit system — direct from factory to consumer — the gap 
has been bridged and high prices do not now stand between you and 
realization. 

Just an ornament? Did that "mere man" of yours say it would be 
throwing good money away? Well, suppose he did. You can tell him a 
thing or two. Those who have consoles in their homes will say they don't 
know how they could get along without them, and why shouldn't there be 
a Console in every home? Besides the decorative feature, think of the 
convenience. You would know just how the skirt "hangs" without 
waiting to see your reflection in the store windows. Seeing yourself "all 
at once" in a mirror will cause you to look more carefully to your personal 
appearance. 

Beautifully figured and flaked Quarter Sawed Oak, blended with the 
flowing grain of the regular sawed, makes an ideal combination. We can 
furnish also in the close grained Birch of the Northern Forests, stained 
and finished in imitation of deep, rich mahogany. 

Prices on Consoles are free on board cars, our factory, in Southern 
Indiana, from where freight rates to all Eastern and Southern points are the 
same, or less than from Chicago, and Western and Northern points only 
very slightly advanced. 



These Consoles are finished just like a fine piece of parlor 
furniture and ready to set up in your home. Filled, Shel- 
laced, Varnished, Rubbed and Finished to a high piano polish.

ART IN WINDOW 
DESIGNS 

We show a number 
of the best designs in 
Cottage Windows and 
we are confident that a 
choice can be made to 
suit the taste of the most 
fastidious. The different 
styles range from the 
clear, plain glass of our 
"Plainview" Window to 
the stately beauty of lead- 
ed beveled plate as ex- 
emplified in our "Aris- 
tocrat" design on opposite 
page. 

Here portrayed on 
either side we have some 
fine examples of lace de- 
signs, faithful reproduc- 
tions of the famous Bat- 
tenburg lace and rivaling 
in beauty by the close- 
ness of imitation. It is 
plainly a matter of indi- 
vidual taste in making a 
proper selection of Cot- 
tage Windows. We 
make no recommend- 
ations of one design over 
another and only say 
that at our low prices, we 
are giving you the best 
values that money can 
buy. 

This is not a com- 
plete list of sizes. We 
are able to furnish any 
standard size in Cottage 
windows up to and in- 
cluding 50x50 inches with 
50x22 inch transom.

CRYSTAL No. 10-E-66 




SOME FINE 

EXAMPLES OF ART 

WINDOWS 



Our "Crystal" design in 
clear glass is one of the best 
examples of a leaded glass 
pattern. It is exactly the 
same in design as our 
"Aristocrat", differing from 
it only in that the latter is 
beveled plate while the 
"Crystal" is clear double- 
strength glass. 

We also show here two 
of the best designs in leaded 
colored art glass. Our 
"Herald" is made up after 
the same pattern as "Crys- 
tal" and "Aristocrat" and by 
a tasteful combination of 
colors, a real gem of a win- 
dow results. Our "Rain- 
bow" as its name implies, is 
a vari- colored design of 
leaded art glass. The colors 
are harmoniously blended 
and afford a shield from the 
sun's strong rays without 
making it necessary to draw 
the shades and exclude the 
light altogether* 



The list given below is 
not complete as to sizes. 
We can furnish any stand- 
ard size up to 50x50 inches 
with 50x22 inch transom and 
we will be glad to quote 
prices on request.

glass, particularly adapted for 
use in glass partitions, in offices

but affording plenty of light 
for all particular purposes. 



Our chipped glass is cc 

side red stronger than the on 
nary run of chipped or frost 
glass. Used mainly for bat 
room doors and windows or 1 
any other purpose where sen 
privacy is desired, at the sai 
time admitting an abundan 
of light.

BIBBED GLASS. 



Low in price. Used for any purpose where no 
particular fancy job is required, at the same time 
obscuring the view from the curious. Just the 
thing for basements of apartment buildings, 
factories, warehouses. As it diffuses more light 
.than any other kind of 
I glass (except Prism), it 
I has proven a popular 
skylight glass. 

Bibbed glass sold In

"GIANT" 
COLONIAL COLUMNS 

For the typical colonial home, nothing can surpass 
the majestic beauty and imposing grandeur of our 
"Giant" Colonial Columns. These columns are staved 
like the smaller columns and built of extra heavy 
stock, selected poplar. Even the smallest of these 
columns, 14 inches in diameter, are made of stock 2 
inches thick and in the heaviest columns we use 
3-mch lumber. This is an important fact and always 
should be considered when comparing values. To 
insure reaching you in perfect condition, the "Giants" 
are given a prime coat of paint and shipped direct 
from fact or v.

ROUND COLONIAL COLUMNS 

LOCK JOINT AND DOWEL CONSTRUCTION 

BUILT UP FROM CLEAR SELECTED STOCK 

OF THE MOST DURABLE LUMBER. 

Our High Grade Colonial Columns are made of 
thoroughly seasoned lumber, selected with careful 
regard to weather-resisting quality, strictly clear stock 
being used. The staves are lockjointed and glued to 
make a perfect and tightly fitting joint. 

In the matter of price, we have gone to the extreme 
limit to give the best quality for the least price, but 
m no way have we allowed price reduction to lower 
the high character of these goods. 

We do not handle No. 2 Columns, as experience 
has proved that builders cannot be satisfied with an 
inferior grade.

SQUARE BUILT-UP COLUMNS AND NEWELS. There is considerable demand for square Colonial Columns, which usually have to be made to order— 
an expulsive proposition. By having these Columns made in quantities, we are able to offer a solidly-built, hiirh-grade Square Column at a price that 
right. J. he bquare Newel, 10-E-521, is made to match, but also can be used with round columns as well. The Box Porch Newel. 10-E-522, is neat and 
plain and will match with almost any style column. Remember, these are Built-up Columns, not solid or bored posts.

SIDES OF DOOR TRIM 



The best known and most largely used styles of Interior Trim are shown on this page and the page following. The stock from 
which our orders are filled is run fresh every day, the output sometimes running as high as 10 carloads. Thus you are assured of 
getting freshly mac-hined goods that will come to you just as turned out by the factory, everything packed and bundled with great 
care to insure reaching you in the best condition. 

Our stocks are carefully selected, too. We do not use lumber for this purpose unless it passes strict inspection. Every piece 
must be thoroughly seasoned and properly dried or it is not acceptable. Then, too, in making up these trims careful regard is given 
to the matching of the grain — a point too often overlooked by competitors. 

Our Clear Yellow Pine is trie best oil finish stock ever offered and it has the prettiest grain. Our Clear Red Oak is regular 
sawed stock, shewing ail the beautiful variations of the flowing grain. All of our Interior Finish is perfectly manufactured and 
smoothly run. 

You will note that in addition to Clear Yellow Pine we list Yellow Pine for Paint finish. This is stock which is slightly sap- 
stained or in which the graining is not perfect; but, except for such minor defects, it is the same in manufacture and condition as the 
Clear grade. It is plenty good enough for paint jobs but not recommended for natural finish.

STAIR MATERIAL

Workmanship 




GOODS OF SUPERIOR MERIT. PRICES THAT DEFY COMPETITION 

Beginning with this page, we have for the attention of interested builders a fine line of first class 
materials for practically every kind of stair work. The very best selected stock is required for this kind 
of work and we have made it a special aim to give full measure of quality in addition to meeting 
and under-selling all competitors. 

The stairway is the first thing to be noticed about the interior of a house, just as the stairway 
picture caught your eye when you opened the book at this page. Therefore, it is essential that you 
look well to the style and class of material used for this purpose. 

We are positive that we are able to furnish better material at lower prices 
than any one else can offer. We adhere strictly to a high standard in the manu- 
facture of these goods and we are much more desirous of maintaining a deserved 
reputation for quality than to be known for low prices only. 

On the next two pages, we show diagrams of 
stairways — several different designs to suit any 
ordinary demand — and we put prices on the ma- 
terial so low that it seems unnecessary to invite 
comparison as any one at all 
familiar with such matters will 
easily recognize the big values 
we are offering. 



The above illustration does not represent 
any particular one of our designs, merely 
showing a main landing view so that some 
idea may be gained of how the completed 
stairway will look. 

Similar in design to our Stairways No.

showing how easy it is to put up a flight of stairs from the material we quote.

^ larger range of sizes and a larger variety from the stock we list. You can put up a flight of 

stairs from our machined and cut -up stock in quicker time with less cutting, an important labor-saving feature.

STAIR BILLS 

Below we show diagrams of two stairways for 
which we propose to furnish material at very low 
cost. We have figured on the basis of the actual 
material only as specified in our bills listed here, 
based on average run not higher than 9 ft. 9\ 
inches from floor to floor. Treads and risers will 
be cut to lengths specified. Carriages are not 
furnished— better results may be obtained by cut- 
ting them on the job as the variation of an inch or 
so in height from floor to ceiling is apt to cause 
trouble. 

We furnish these stair bills in the knock-down, 
ready to put together. Carefully packed and 
bundled.

Superb Colonnades and Grilles 



A pleasant surprise is awaiting those ordering any of our 
Colonnade or Grille Designs, because they are so well propor- 
tioned and so substantially built. Rich-looking, yet not gaudy. More 
ornamentation would spoil their effectiveness. They are impres- 
sive styles and will therefore mostly appeal to those of refined taste, 
but the price is not beyond the means of the modest purse, for 
would not anyone cheerfully expend a fair sum for a permanent piece

Surprising 

Value 



To get sonne idea how this Arched Colonnade 
will appear when built in your home, hold the picture 
about two to three feet away from you. By concen- 
trating your gaze on the fire-place for a moment, its 
gracefully defined outlines will gradually be unfolded 
to your view. Just sufficient curve and flexion to 
balance and harmonize with the interior as a whole. 
In a word, symmetrically correct. 

If the Columns w«-e turned to a larger mold, or 
inclined to a more pointed taper, if the carved and 
chiseled Beams and Caps and Brackets were handled 
by a more conservative shaper — if the paneled pedestals 
were not so evenly proportioned and arranged — there 
would still be a Colonnade — "on exhibition." 

Height of Beam work at sides- 18 inches, thickness 
1^ inches, Pedestal 18 inches from wall and 18 inches 
high, made to fit a 5^ -inch or 73^>-inch wall. 

Price covers any size up to 8 ft., 6 in., by 9 ft.

Triumph Grille Colonnade 




Triumphant 

Price, $22.88 

Of late years, the Colonnade built along straight and simple 
lines, without arch, curve or angle, has held full sway, and while 
still favored by many and always will appeal to some home builders, 
there always exists a yearning for that something new and 
different, or just that which has long been admired, but never 
owned. Possession of that something variant is now within vour 
easy grasp, in the shape of our TRIUMPH COLONNADE, a 
typical Arch Grille design. An old pattern modernized to a 
creation of genuine artistic merit. 

Floor posts are 5x5 shaft and 34 inches high. Panel work from 
15 to 18 inches from w T all. Drop on grillework from 12 to 16 
inches at center point. Built up in thorough first-class manner, 
packed with great care to reach you in perfect condition. 

It is essential that correct size of your opening be given. Will 
look out of proportion if used for smaller openings than 6 ft. x 7 ft. 

Price covers any size opening up to 9 ft. x 9 ft. Measure 
your opening correctly. Give width first. Order by Number

offered by others. Do not be mislead by fictitious values. Merit ana

Never before did you have the opportunity to purchase high class in- 
id colonnades at such iow prices. Yo can hardly imagine 



terior columns and uuiomiaoes ai sucn 10 

how much one of these colonnades enhances the beauty of any interior 
especially if you desire to divide two rooms, for instance, the reception room 
and library, or dining room and parlor. In fact, no modern home shou d 
be without at least pne of these openings. We offer plenty of choice so if 
you do not fancy one design, another will surely please you. The woods 
SnniH^TT^ USed for i tote * r finis hing are oat, yellow pine or birch, but 
SJ?t V? y A U desire °ur colonnade or columns made of some other wood to 
match other wood work in your house like cypress yr ash, we will furnish 
pame at the same price as plain red oak. lsn 



Please do not confuse these colonnades with some that others list at higher 
prices which show a single paneled wainscoting, instead of regular box 
pedestal. The pedestals are about two feet projection from wall and about 
Hi inches thick on face, made to fit around 5£ or 7\ inches wide jamb. 

Our prices in every instance are for the wood named in the white, that 
is, just as it leaves the wood-workers' hands, not filled or varnished in anj 
way. Should you want them finished in oil and varnished, we can do so at 
15 per cent extra, or we can supply any design in white enameled at an 
increase of 30 per cent over prices named. In case, you want a finished 
article and wish it to match other wood-wook in the house, describe color 
as near as possible.

Artistic Grillework 



BETTER 
VALUES 



When you want to liven up a certain arch or opening, you naturally 
want something that will not only look tasty and refined, but artistic and 
lively. That's just the effect our Grilles produce. An article of lasting 
adornment. 

They are manufactured in a manner to suit the most fastidious. Worked 
from selected material to satisfy the most critical expert. A choice of woods 
so varied, to meet the wants of every locality and surroundings. The woods 
mainly used are Red Oak, Yellow Pine, Northern Birch, Southern Cypress 
and Brown Ash. For white enamel finish, nothing will equal Birchwood. 
Prices on other woods furnished on application. 

All Grilles under four feet in width take the same price as though they 
measured four feet, with the exception of No, 10-G-1220, on which a minimum 
price up to three feet is listed 



Just About One-Half Dealers' Regular Prices 

Since all our Grilles are made to your order, they are shipped in the 
natural wood, just as they leave the wood-worker's hands, without varnish or 
stain. An extra charge of 20 per cent is made for finishing in oil and varnish, 
or in stain and varnish; for white enamel finish, add 40 per cent to catalogue 
prices. It often happens that grilles are. wanted in a finish to match other 
woodwork, and by sending us a small sample of such finished woodwork, we 
can very easily duplicate the finish. However, if you know the kind of wood 
you want to match and it is finished natural, say Oak for instance, it will not 
be necessary to send us sample, just say if finish is to be light, dark or golden. 
Be particular to order correct size, state kind of wood, for if made according 
to your order and your size is wrong they will not be returnable. 

Our Grilles are easy to set in place, because they are made up complete, 
in one piece, therefore requiring no expert labor. 



fiii^If kind of wood wanted is not given in your order, we will ship Oak.

it is made a centre for the family,— but the furnace! Who ever invited 
the faithful few of his friends about him and bade them make merry 
over a register? Did you ever hear of a laughing, loving family gath- 
ered around a radiator? 

Gather your family around an open fire-place and life begins to 
look reasonable;— a sweet serenity fills your soul, and an unwonted 
comfort pervades the marrow of your bones. 



The wood mantel is built along entirely different lines from that 
formerly used, It is not cumbersome, or commonplace, but our best 
architects and furniture manufacturers now advocate designs such as 
we are showing this year. 

Beware of cheap imitations and meaningless ornaments spread 
all over your mantel. The plain effects and designs are correct and show 
good taste, and it should be so, because the mantel is conspicious on 
account of its connection with the fire-place, around which everyone 
gathers, and it is generally the first thing seen when first entering a 
room. Our mantels are approved of and specified by the best architects. 



Our designs include the different period styles. We can furnish them in the natural wood, without stain or vai nish Our st 
woods areBtrch Mahogany Quartered Oak r Plain Oak. Mantels are carried in stock, and ordinarily can be furnished prornDtlv 
Mission Mantels are finished in ah the popular Mission colors, such as Early English, Weathered, and Fume™ and th^sffis 
harmonize with the best Mission furniture made. Mantels quoted in Oak and Mahogany are carried in stock finished in Gofden Oak 
and regular Mahogany, Rubbed Piano Polish and so shipped unless otherwise ordered. ^uen waK 

Mantels can also be furnished painted three coats white, without extra charge, so that you may have same white enameled 
after setting it up m your house, as it is impossible to ship white enameled mantels without damage. Extra charge and special 
quotation will be made for mantels wanted in other woods than those specified under each mantel, and also for different sizes 

Olir flliarAntpP Remember!— there is as much difference in Guarantees- 

wui uuttittuicc as there is in Mantels. Our line is sold under a Guar 
antee that covers every point,— material, construction, newness of design 
finish and safe delivery. If same is found not as represented, notify us and it- 
will be your privilege to return the goods at our expense, so you are safe. 
We feel equally safe, as nothing but the most unfortunate combination of 
circumstances could result in defective goods leaving our factory.

Glazed Art Mantel and Hearth Tile 

Glazed Tile is positively the only kind that can be kept perfectly clean. 
No trouble at all to keep spotless an d bright. 

Every piece of our Enameled Art Mantel Tile is guaranteed flawless in quality and perfectly 
manufactured. These are the essentials that ensure permanency and when you have your mantel 
faced and your hearth laid with our strong, durable vitreous Art Tile, you have not only added beauty 
to your home, but you have also built for all time to come. 

All of the most desirable colors— Ivory, Cream, Green, Brown, Delft Blue and Mottled Onyx in 
various shades. The glazing of our tile is an exceptionally brilliant hard enamel. The colors are 
literally burned in and it is impossible for the tints or shades to fade discolor or tarnish. 

Our Enameled Art Tile makes the best sanitary hearth and mantel facings and our low prices put 
this high grade material within the reach of the smallest purse. Low in price but not cheap 
We have not sacrificed quality for price. Quality first and the price as low as is consistent— that s 
our motto. There are some Inferior tilings on the market of the cheap variety, manufactured 
from poor quality of clay and with a finish which cannot be guaranteed. Such a tile will not stand 
the test of wear and hard usage. .- .... 

The size of each piece is 6x1* inches. In barrel lots, special prices will be made. . ,

MARBLEIZED SLATE TILE Take* the Place of Regular Glazed Tile 



Save 50 per cent in Price and 75 per cent in Labor 



Here is something Attractive. Slate marble- 
ized to imitate the various shades of tile. It 
comes in slabs, requiring three pieces for the fac- 
ings for a mantel and one piece for the hearth. 
These slabs come to you all ready to set up, no 
tile setting required and consequently a great sav- 
ing to you not only in the first cost of the material 
but in the cost of setting up. 

The material is regular slate about 7-16 inch 
thick for facings and double that thickness for 
hearths. It is scored to represent tile and covered 
with a cheimcal composition on face, having a 
polished finish and marbleized to represent the 
various colors of different tiles. The following are 
stock mottled colors: Order by number. 

(1) Brown and white. 

(2) Green, yellow and white. 
Light green and white. 
Dark green and white. 
Green, Rose, Pink and White.

Now, take for example an ordinary 2-Iight window, glass measurement 20"x28* in each sash. The outside measure for a full length 
screen will be 2' wide by 5'2" high; allowing one inch extra, the size to be figured is 2' by 5'3\ a total of 10£ square feet

Our "STANDARD" Window Screens are well made from 
carefully selected materials. Close-fitting joints. Strong- 
ly built in every way. 

Small outlay of money invested in screen doors and 
windows may not only save you doctor bills but may save 
the lives of yourself and children. Danger lurks in the 
hairy, clinging feet of the common house fly. Millions 
of disease breeding germs are carried into your home, 
contaminating your food, and the entire list of ravaging 
fevers are liable to follow, to which children are especially 
susceptible. And not only that, but what a nuisance 
they~are. 

Shut out these pests, and keep them out by using our 
custom-made screens. 

"STANDARD" Screens are made to order either full 
size or half size. The half size screens are grooved at the 
sides for slides. Slides are included in the prices quoted. 
Furnished in three grades of wire as listed. 

Our, custom made Window Screens are furnished

Our "RELIABLE" Window Screens have full mortise and tenoned joints, the tenons being securely wedged in the mortise after being dipped 

in boiling hot glue. This is unquestionably the strongest joint that can be made. 

Window Screens of Unusual Merit 

A special feature is the small duplicate brass numbers furnished free with our

This is a strictly high grade screen in every way, made from the best materials

Wire Cloth is stretched tight, tacked securely on edges add covered with half round 
mitred mouldings. 

Illustrations shown represent half the size of a full window, to cover the bottom 
sash. The cut at left shows the hand holes and the cut at right shows imaginary 
sections cut out so that you can see the brass plated steel springs which are set in 
the grooves. These springs are fastened at one end only, allowing a certain amount 
of play so that the screens can be easily raised and lowered. Easily removed and 
in-tailed by pushing against springs that clear the grooves from opposite sliding 
strip. Oiled hardwood sliding strips are furnished. 

The "RELIABLE" Full Length Window Screen is made the same as the Sliding 
Screen, with the exception that there are no grooves or springs at sides and no 
hand hole lifts. Full length screens have narrow bar across the center.

COMPOSITION 
Top and Bottom Layers 

heavy Fibre Board. 

Center Layer — Rock Plaster Com- 
position. 





I F=? 



NO 1 E— EUREKA Plaster Board is full 5-16 of an inch thick, much 
heavier and stronger than any similar plaster board on the market. 
With its two heavy layers of fibre paper and between these a thick layer 
of Rock Plaster Composition, it is equal to eight-ply of the old style 
sheathing. Made by special process. Enormous pressure is applied and 
wnen the composition has set, it is practically a solid mass 



\ FIVE-IN-ONE I 

EUREKA Plaster Board combines in one operation, five distinct advantages 



I. WALL COVERING 

The perfect substi- 
tute, better than 
lath and plaster. 



2. FIREPROOFING 
EUREKA Plaster 
Board is non in- 
flammable. That 
is one of its most 
important features 
It simply cannot 
burn* 



3 SOUNDPROOFING 
As a sound dead* 
it has no 



WHY? 

BECAUSE it is safer and cheaper and it does 

away with 99% of the muss and dirt which is un- 
avoidable with the old style lath and planter 
There is no dampness to contend with, aor 
waiting for the walls to dry out. The work o f 
interior finish can proceed at once. 
WHY? 

BECAUSE it is a well known fact that fibre 
paper itself, when closely packed together, will 
not burn through even when exposed to a direct 
flame. The edges and corners may become 
charred, but it would take the heat of the hot- 
test furnace a long time to thoroughly consume 
L t- i By JL ctual test i% wiU stan d 1700 degrees of 
heat. The outside layers of fibre are thoroughly 
saturated with the Rock Plaster Composition 
and this material absolutely CANNOT burn 
WHY? 

BECAUSE if ordinary plaster is considered 
reasonably sound-proof, we make it 99% more 
so in manufacturing our EUREKA Plaster Board 
Dy putting on each side of plaster, a heavy layer 
of fibrous paper which everybody knows is used in 
all kinds of mechanical work as asound-deadener. 
WHY? 

BECAUSE we all know that paper is one of the 
oest non-conductors of both heat and cold. 
l^UREKA Plaster Board gives 99% more pro- 
tection than ordinary Plastered walls. Even 
the hottest rays of the sun cannot get through 
this Rock Plaster Composition and the two 
heavy coats of fibrous paper. 
WHY? 

BECAUSE as a non-conductor of cold, any 
kind of paper is superior to other materials. 
Anyone familiar with building construction 
knows that sheathing paper is used between 
sheathing and siding on the outside walls fo* 
««« i™ «,« *t,„* • t u ^protection against the wind and cold. Every- 
one knows that a single sheet of newspaper wrapped around your body under 
your coat will keep you l warm on a cofd day, and it stands to reason that 
EUREKA Piaster Board, with its two thicknesses of good quality heavy 
£ b £°£ s P a Per. is impervious to the severest weather. As a fuel saver alone 
if it had no other merits, EUREKA Plaster Board would pay for 'Itself in a 
season or two* 

THE MOST ECONOMICAL 

h^*?^^ 63 ^^^^!^ 6 ^^ 111 ' 3; sound-deadener and a non-conductor of 
heat and cold, EUREKA Piaster Board actually is much cheaper than the 
old-fashioned method of construction, and combines many advantages which 
are not obtained with lath and plaster. It can be put on in just one-third

most enduring walls and will last as long as your building stands. 

MAKES A PERFECT BOND WITH PLASTER 

.u^vP 1 ? 6 is f a , flrm &P to EUREKA PIaster Board, even firmer than the 
clinch on metal or wooden lath. The adhesion is perfect. For this opera- 
tion it is not necessary to moisten the wall, therefore, a big saving in labor

?<? ;u Wh i C ?K ls always an additional expense and disagreeable feature attached 
to the lata and plaster process 

NO WASTE 

— JK?^ Inch ° f EUREKA Plaster Board can be used. It cuts with a 
smooth, even edge and positively will not crack in sawing or nailing, 



4. HEATPROOFING

An artistic interior— using "CEIUT1TE" Wall Board 




"CEIL-TITE" CONSTRUCTION 

VERMIN PROOF Vprmin a . n(J £ erms wil1 not ncst an( * brc ed " m CEIL-TILE Board, due 
■ kiiiriiii i ii v VI t the presence of asphalt which is a disinfeetive. Plaster harbors 
vermin and therefore is unsanitary. 

MANY USES CEIL " TITE Board is the most durable and artistic material on the market 
mn n i viiktf f or finishing new or remodeling dwellings throughout— also for sheathing 
purposes and floors and roofs where perfect insulation is desired and never needs replacing. 
PERMANENCE CE,L-TITE Board, on account of the tough fibre used is guaranteed td 
i kiiiTiniiLiiVL have less contraction and expansion than any similar board on the mar- 
ket. Because it is made of the best quality of fibreboard, "much better than that used on imita- 
tions, our fibreboard being of long, woody stock. It is unaffected by cold or heat by actud tests. 



VALUABLE INFORMATION 

CONSTR UCT1 ON CEIL-TITE Board is composed of three heavy sheets of fibre board, united by 
vviivinuvilvli walls of asphalt waterproofing compound, the total forming a firm and rigid 
Bheet. 3-16 inch total thickness. 

SIZES CEIL-TITE Board docs not require unsightly strips close together, as we are offering you the 
wi&ibu ^ greatest selection of sizes that have ever been offered on the market; sheets as long as 16 
feet, which is longer than most rooms ordinarily are in length and certainly longer than the width of almost 
any room. Beautiful effects for beam ceilings and side walls can be had. For instance — if your room is 
16x16, you can buy the 16 foot length sheets, place a beam at every joint and thus have a perfect ceiling. 
WATER PROOF I NG CEIL-TITE Board is impervious to water, moisture and dampness as it is 
iiHiLnrnvurillU impossible for moisture to penetrate the two inner sheets of asphalt 
thereby insuring dry, healthy rooms regardless of outdoor conditions. 

NON-CON DUCTIVF CEIL-T,TE Board is a non-conductor of sound, heat or cold and possesses 
ii vii vviiHUUIIIk greater tensile strength than plaster and will not disintegrate. 
FIRE R ETARD I NO L-TITE Board retards the progress of fire and resists heat to a degree of 

I I II ft. II ft. I Hit V I II U high intensity. It will remain rigid and firm in place up to the time that the 
fire is beyond control and does not pull away or crack, thereby offering leeway to the flames as does plaster. 
DFCORATION CEIL-TITE Board offers unlimited opportunities for artistic decoration. 
I* K.UVIIHI I vil Jt can be papered, tinted, panelled, stenciled, enameled, frescoed or 
painted with oil or water colors. Many artistic panel designs may be obtained by its user or 
the joints between the sheets of board may be filled with a crack filler, as well as the depressions 
over the nail heads, leaving a smooth surface over which to apply the decoration. It requires 
approximately 1 pound of crack filler to every 150 lineal foot of Ceil-Tite Board. After the 
filler has set three or four days, scrape it off smooth, then give it a coat of shellac. 
SHIPMENTS CEIL-TITE Board is packed for shipment in special crates; we guarantee 
Villi RTIft.Il I v ^^ delivery in good condition. The shipping weight is approximately 
" n pounds per 100 square feet. We also show shipping weight per sheet. 




APPIIOATION CEIL-TITE Board is apnlied directly 

HrrLIVHIlUn to t he studding and joists. Headers 
should be placed not over five feet apart and also that all four 
edges of the board may be nailed securely. The ceiling boards 
should be applied first and reach clear to the wall studs, 
permitting the wall sheets to fit up snugly under them. Flat 
Head or Box Nails and Bung Head or Casing Nails should be 
used. Size for direct application, 1J inch. For applying 
over old plaster, 2 inch nails should be used, nails to be placed 
not more than 2 inches apart in both cases. 

NOTE ^wing to tiie W^ varie ty of sizes we offer, 
ii V I ft- an d the fact that we are extremely crowded for 
warehouse room here in Chicago, until our new buildings are 
finished, compels us to offer same for shipment direct from our 
factory only, same being located at Cincinnati, Ohio, and from 
which point freight rates, of course are considerable less to all 
central and eastern territory. Below find a table of sizes and 
prices of CEIL-TITE Board.

and easily CEIL-TITE Board is applied. Nailed di- 
rectly to the studding which are set 16" to centers.

ii^Ro™ "MAGIC" WALL BOARD 

Takes the Place of Lath and Plaster. Makes Warm Houses. 



"Magic" Wall Board as now manufactured by the improved process is a perfect substitute for old style lath and plaster. An important change has 
been made in the form of construction which we have found to give more satisfactory results. The same composition is used as formerly and all the good 
features of the original wall board are preserved and some bad features, such as shrinkage and blistering, eliminated. We have found a better process. 



"Magic'* Wall Board takes the 
place of lath and plaster. It is man- 
ufactured for us exclusively under 
licensed patent. It is a combina- 
tion of lath, asphaltic mastic and 
heavily sized cardboard paper all in 
one. It is manufactured in sheets 4 
feet square; it is ready to nail up. 
Anyone who can drive nail can do 
the work. 




If ow It is Made 

The top or flat surface is heavy sized card board — strong, 
durable, fibrous paper. Next comes a thick layer of asphalt 
mastic and then regular building lath, planed smooth, spaced 
about 4-inch apart. The mastic is applied while hot and the 
lath are imbedded in the solution under an enormous pressure 
of 500 lbs. to the square inch, thus assuring positive adhesion. 
When it has cooled and set, the composition is as strong and 
rigid as if one solid piece. Impervious to changing weather 
conditions. Not affected by dampness nor heat. 




New Way 



Tills illustration 
shows just one of 
the many possibil- 
ities — an attic fin- 
ished off with 
"Magic" Wall 
Board. No dirt, no 
muss and very lit' 
tie expense* 



Advantages of Asphalt Mastic 

AS USED IN THE MANUFACTURE OF OUR MAGIC WALL BOARD. 

Asphalt Mastic is proof against (1) Moisture — (2) Heat— (3) Cold— 
(4) Wind or Air— (5) Sound— (6) Vermin— (7) Acid. 

Asphalt Mastic is unaffected by climatic conditions or changes in the 
weather. Its advantages, therefore, over lime plaster for wall and ceiling 
purposes at once becomes apparent. 



Dry Walls and Ceilings 

" Magic" Wall Board makes a sanitary, firm, substantial wall, which 
insures apartments anywhere at any time as dry as a chip. 

"Magic" Wall Board is delivered to users dry, is applied dry, and stays 
dry for all time. 

"Magic" Wall Board does not absorb moisture. That's why the un- 
sightly ragged, ever lengthening and widening cracks common in plaster 
wails and ceilings are not to toe found in houses finished with "Magic" 
Wall Board. 

Some of the Many Uses 

(1) SUBSTITUTE FOR LATH AND PLASTER. "Magic" Wall 
Board takes the place of lath and plaster when nailed directly to the inside 
studding with the finished surface exposed on inside of building. Sheathing 
boards in many cases will not be necessary, unless climate is severe when 
"Magic** Wall Board is used on inside instead of lath and plaster. 

(2) SUBSTITUTE FOR SHEATHING. "Magic" Wall Board is used 
as a substitute for sheathing. That is, it is nailed to the studding on the 
outside of building with lath and asphalt side exposed, then the weather 
boarding nailed over same. This offers double protection, gives insulation 
and dead air space between "Magic" Wall Board and the siding and makes 
a thoroughly warm house. When "Magic" Wall Board is used as a 
sheathing on the outside of a building, and if "Magic" Wall Board is used as 
a substitute for lath and plaster on the inside of building, it offers great pro- 
tection, giving an ideal building regardless of climatic conditions. It keeps 
out wind in trie winter and heat and moisture in the summer. 

(3) FOR CEMENT COATING. "Magic" Wall Board nailed on the 
outside studding with the lath side exposed is suitable for cement coat- 
ing. It has been tested and found that cement will adhere to the asphalt 
mastic with the combination of lath and asphalt, backed by a heavy card- 
board paper, and then when the cement coating is applied, a better wall 
will be had than can be secured from any other combination. It will be 
moisture proof and will mean a saving of 50 per cent in cement, as the cement 
does not have to drop down behind to make a "key", as is the case with 
ordinary lath either of wood or wire. 

(4) POULTRY HOUSE OR BARN LINING. Mice and vermin will 
not nest in "Magic" Wall Board, as It contains no hair, and asphalt 
mastic is very objectionable to them and they will not attack it as they 
do ordinary lath and plaster. It will make a warm poultry house or barn. 

If you have an attic to finish off, "Magic" Wall Board is just the thing. 
You can do the work yourself in less time than it would take you to hunt up a 
plasterer and talk it over. 

Magic Wall Board is made in sheets of the most convenient size, 4 feet 
•square, and put up in crates containing 16 sheets — 256 square feet. 



How it is Applied 

"Magic** Wall Board is made in 
four foot squares to meet the de- 
mand of standard sized studding, 
set to 16-inch centers. (Equally 
adapted to 12 or 24 inch centers.) 

"Magic** Wall Board is easy to 
handle- It is nailed with the lath 
side directly to the studding, leaving 
a smooth paper to be the face; or if 
a brick, stone or cement block 
wall is to be covered, directly to the 
furring strips, requiring no 
special or intricate tools and any 
one who can drive a nail can apply it. 
Use an ordinary 4-penny wire box 
nail or a 4-penny lath nail, driving 
nails in every lath at every studding. 
It can be cut into any shape to fit 
any corner. It can be bent to fit 
any curve. It cannot possibly 
drop off. It is well to leave a space 
of 1-8 inch between the joists to 
allow for settling of the building if 
the building is new. Fill the joints 
carefully with plaster of paris or 
wood fibre plaster. After this is 
nearly set smooth down with an 
ordinary wetted brush and trowel 
before applying the kalsomine, paint 
or wall paper over the surface for the 
final decoration. There is no pro- 
duct upon which wall paper will 
stick better than on "Magic" Wall 
Board. 

Begin at the Top 

In applying Wall Board, begin at 
the top, as it is easier to fit at the 
bottom on the floor than at the top 
on a scaffold. 

Drive one nail in every lath, and 
every studding. 

This method is sufficient to hold 
tight and it means a saving of labor 
as well as nails. 



When wall paper is applied it is 
best to use muslin or cheese cloth 
strips over joints. To obviate any 
possibility of paper cracking, use 
shrunken cloth. 

No Waste 

Every foot of wall board can 
be utilized. You do not have to 
pay for window and door spaces in 
its application. "Magic" Wall Board 
is readily cut with a hand saw and 
knife to fit all spaces without any 
waste at all. Therefore, 1,000 
square leet of Wall Board will cover 
1,000 square feet of space. Coal 
oil will remove asphalt mastic from 
saw or knife. 

Here's a remarkable item on sav- 
ing. You can apply Magic Wall 
Board in half the time required in 
the use of any other material. That 
means an additional saving of 60 
per cent In labor. One man is all 
that is required in applying "Magic" 
Wall Board to the studding. An 
ordinary lather can finish a wall 
with "Magic" Wall Board in less 
time than he can put on lath or 
plastering. 

Decoration 

"Magic" Wall Board will take any 
kind of decoration — wall paper, 
paint or kalsomine. A very good 
combination is to paper the side 
walls, paneling the ceilings in 4-foot 
squares, the exact size of "Magic" 
Wall Board sheets. The most artistic 
effect may be obtained by the use of 
ceiling beams. 

After the joints have been properly 
fr'ed, you can paint or kalsomine 
your walls and no cracks will show. 
If wall paper or burlap is used, all 
that is necessary is to strip the joints 
with shrunk muslin, as explained in 
the instructions.

Here are the 13 points of superiority analyzed. Read them over 
carefully and be convinced. But greater than these 13 points 
of superiority are our low prices. 

Practical greenhouse men applying common sense to their business 
will readily concede that the standard size Sash 3 It. z 6 It., made with 
four rows of glass makes the ideal Hotbed or Greenhouse. If the stiles, 
rails and bars were made narrow like the ones in sash made with five 
rows of glass, you would have a little more glass space to begin with 
but less glass to end with, because such sash lack the strength and 
rigidity necessary to support the weight ot 20 lbs. of glass. That is the 
very reason such sash require bracing. And such bracing bars cast 
an extra amount of shade and cost an extra amount of money. 
Our four-row sash don't need bracing of any kind and you don't 
want any other kind. 

LISTEN. The five-row sash is Inferior in more ways than one, 
they are made that way for the distinct purpose by the manufacturer 
so he can use his odds and ends of Broken glass cut down to 6 inch 
in width. Such lights as a rule are not uniform in length, because 
the broken pieces from which they are cut are not uniform. This means 
an extra expense for you when repair time comes around, because 6 Inch 
glass is not a standard size glass In the first place and you would have 
to buy larger sizes and cut them down, and In the second place because 
the length of the glass in the sash varies which will entail an extra amount 
of waste. This Is especially true when buying open sash. 

In the third place because of many lights being shorts require more 
laps and laps harbor dirt and dirt casts shade. There you are. 
You will take the four-row sash with standard glass every time. 

In the fourth place if the narrow bars are not braced there is danger 
of spreading In one row and danger of contraction in another. 
Result? Breakage of glass and loosening of putty. No — you can't 
use the five-row sash at any price and our standard four-row sash 
are lowest In price. 

About sash made with three rows of 10 In. glass. There is a 
decided disadvantage, because the price is higher to start with and 
they only have 2 center bars and cost twice as much to repair broken 
glass. The bars cannot be made heavier than the ones in our four- 
row sash because this will weaken the stiles or side pieces which are 
narrow enough already. You are safer with the superior kind and 
why shouldn't you buy them when you can get them for less money? 

You get a Sash made of Clear Stock and in addition the Western 
Pine Sash are painted in Lead and Oil. An extra deep rabbet means 
an extra amount of putty protection. Glass is set and pointed by 
hand, using large triangle tins and extra size tacks. 

And last but not least, our Hotbed Sash are Shipped from our 
Chicago Yards, assuring better service than you could possibly obtain 
from any other point. Eastern customers especially should take this 
Into consideration. 



How to Make a Hotbed and 
How to Make It Pay. 




COMMUTERS AND OTHER coun- 
try folk who are fond of Chinese 
Gardens. Hake your garden pay 
by making a Hotbed. 

You can have radishes, vegetables, 
and strawberries long before the man 
who does not use Hotbed sash, and 
whatever you do not need for your 
own use, you can without trouble, 
dispose of to others at fancy prices 
because home grown garden truck is in 
great demand everywhere. 

Illustration shows how simple it is to make a hotbed. You should 
dig your pit 2 ft. deep and as long as you wish to make the hotbed. 
Board up the sides with 1 In. or li In. lumber. The frame should be 
made in two sections. The lower section about 18 in. high all around, 
and the top section should be made 16 In. at the back and 8 in. in the 
front. This will give a slope of 8 In. to shed the rain. Place fresh 
manure in the pit to a depth of about 18 or 20 inches, then put the. 
hotbed sash on and let them remain for 3 or 4 days, then cover with soil 
as rich as you can get. Let it stand for 6 or 6 days longer depending 
upon the temperature. Soil should be about 6 In. from the glass at 
the lowest point. Hotbeds should be made about two weeks before 
seeding. Be sure to raise your sash a little every morning for ventil- 
ation but not far enough so that the cold air can Blow directly on the 
plants, and as soon as the sun sets close the sash over night to retain 
•he beat. 



To obtain best results the Bed should be j 
posure and be protected from the North Wind

FINISH LUMBER 



CEILING AND PAR TITION 



King of the Forest — 
The Stately Fir 

Fairminded, farsighted folk, who are 
familiar with Fir k-n-o-w that this fine, 
choice lumber, grown in the Pacific 
Coast States, has taken great forward 
strides in the last few years, being used 
more and more for all kinds of building 
purposes. Suitable for all around in- 
terior and exterior work. A great 
favorite for finishing boards. 

Why "F-I-R" 
Fears No Competition 

Many woods are being used and 
pushed for outside finish, but none come 
nearer than Fir to the Northern Soft 
Pine when both economy and utility are 
considered. There may be other woods 
equalling Fir's durability, but none can 
equal Fir's low price. 

When one can buy a Selected grade of 
lumber practically clear and free from knots 
at a lower price than common knotty White 
Pine — will not any common sense builder 

promptly take advantage of it? If he uses 
his brain he surely will. 

All finishing furnished in regular 
lengths, dressed on two sides to standard 
widths and thicknesses. 

Prices of FIR FINISHING LUMBER

GRADES: — Finishing Lumber grades cover a great many technical 
points, depending upon the character of the wood. Briefly described — one 
face or side of clear grade must be suitable for natural or hard oil finish, free 
from knots. Select grade of Fir is especially recommended for outside work, 
but not for interior finish; Use the clear for that. 

Select Common White Pine contains a certain number of knots, fewei 
and smaller in proportion in the 4" and 6" than in the wider boards. 

**C" Select White Pine is two grades below clear grade. Contains 
some few sound knots, smaller than appear in select Common White Pine, 
also sap stain. 

No. 1 White Pine Partition is practically the same" quality as Select 
Common with some imperfections in manufacture. 

No. 1 Yellow Pine Ceiling and Partition, same grade as "C" Selec* 
White Pine and some slight imperfections in manufacture. 

No. 2 Ceiling — Lowest grade made in ceiling. Contains more knota 
than No. 1 but as a rule are sound and not large. Suitable for cheap parti- 
tion and especially for cheap sheathing on which wall paper is to be applied.

SIDING I SIDING! In quantities running into millions of feet handled every year. Carload lots coming in all the time. All best and well 
known woods, noted for their paint-adhering and weather-defying qualities. 

You will find some variation in price, partly because some woods are more durable, but this difference is governed mainly by the general supply. 
If the market is overstocked on a certain item, the price goes down and we are always on the spot to take advantage of market _ conditions, securing a 
large share and more of such surplus. Remember when comparing prices, that we ship direct from our main plant in Chicago, with the lowest freight 
rates and quickest services assured and if others equal our price or their price seems lower, it is due to the fact 

that you would have to pay freight from some long distance mill 

point or unimportant distributing center. Therefore you would not only 

be exposed to financial loss on account of freight charges but you 

might also lose valuable time, let alone your peaceful state of mind.

injj, Split siding, Clap boards or Lap

dar and Spruce. Macnined to 
standard width and thickness. 
Prices arc for mixed lengths 
varying from 4 to 16 feet and on

of short lengths is considered 
small and the shorter lengths al- 
ways can be used to better advant- 
age between doors and windows, 
so no waste will result.

EXPLANATION OF GRADES 

Clear grade means free from knots without any reservation, 

Select grade — Pitchstreak is the principle defect in Select Fir Flooring 
and Siding. Some appear on the surface only, some go down deeper. But 
for this drawback the grade would be practically clear, so the Fir is very nice 
*tock. By just a little cutting you will lose very little time and gain a clear 
clean-cut job. 

B grade — Next grade to clear. On siding the main defect is in manu- 
facture. Some few small knots are admissible, not many. Some of our *'B'* 
Red Cedar runs practically free from knots. 

C grade — This grade in White Pine Siding contains too many knots and 
other defects to go for clear or "B" grade. Makes a good siding for jobs not 
requiring an entire clear surface and with a little cutting here and there even 
this objection can be largely overcome. 

No. 1 grade — Allows for some knots, but they must be sound, not loose, 
usually the wider the boards the larger the knots. Sometimes some pieces 
contain splits or cracks but if painted, this defect will do no harm. Our No. 1 
Soft Arkansas Pine Drop Siding runs much better for the grade, knots are 
fewer and smaller than in White Pine, some nearly coming up to a Select grade. 

No. 2 grade — Cheapest grade we make in siding. Allows for more knots 
than No. 1, both large and small, as well as imperfections in manufacture and 
an occasional small knot hole, so if you want to make a pretty good job, there 
will be some waste.

Lower Prices in Car 



If any certain length is wanted it is necessary to order Clear or No. 1 
Soft Arkansas Pine, and price will be 20c more per 100 ft. No. 2 Arkansas 
Pine, Fir and White Pine, cannot be furnished in specified lengths. 

If you would rather use White Pine in preference to Soft Arkansas Pine 
for siding (which however, is all shortleaf ) but should hesitate to place your 
order for White Pine because of the doubtful grade at a commensurate higher 
price for such grade, why not reverse this condition by ordering a higher grade 
commodity at a lower price. 

That commodity is Fir — Pacific Coast Fir. Not a new wood by any 
means. Read what we say about Fir for porch floors on other page. So don't 
remain under the impression please, that White Pine is the on ly wood to use.

Siding is figured on the basis of the ripping width of the lumber from 
which it is machined. For instance, 1x6 Drop Siding is made from a 6 inch 
strip but whenjnachined finishes up $ l A inches only, so this loss of % inch 
in working must be added to the quantity of space you want to cover. On 
bevel or lap siding allowance must also be made for the lap. If you will 
order according to the following table you should have enough. Table shows 
how much 100 ft. will cover, also what percentage to add to your wall space.

allowance for any emergency, so it is always safe to order a little more, 
especially on the No. 1 and No. 2 grades. 

In explaining the grading rules, we have purposely omitted all men- 
tion of technical details, describing in short, concise language, Just what you 
may expect to get. Thus we avoid all misunderstanding. If in this manner 
we are expressing ourselves more clearly than others, we are glad to give you

EXPLANATION OF GRADES 

Clear grade r—Means free from knots, without any reservation. 
Select grade :--The only defect worth considering in Select Fir is pitch 
streaks, most of which can be cut out with little waste 

i™ » ii^? e: ~£ Uow ?i. foi L a fe , w ¥ ots ' but the y must be sound, not 

loose, usually the wider the boards the larger the knot. Sometimes some 
pieces contain slight, checks but this defect will do no harm. Our -No 1 iSt 

S^^iF&rftST^ better for the grade > knot3 are fewer and 

No. 2 grades—Allows for a larger percentage of knots, as well as im- 
perfections in manufacture and an occasional small knot hole, when balance of 
piece is good, and will make a pretty fair job, there will however be some waste 

No. 3 grades— No. 3 Flooring is suitable for sheathing and lining and is 
recommended for no other purpose than a cheap kind of floor. 



We have refrained on purpose to mention technical description 
of grades, explaining same briefly yet concisely so that those the least 
posted may fully understand. Thus we say what others omit, because 
we want to avoid all confusion at the start. 



• Save money on freight charges by ordering a carload of 12 000 
feet or more, or if you order 4,000 or 5,000 pounds of mill- 
work we can give you the benefit of "special" freight rates if 
you can make a combined weight of 24,000 pounds lumber and mill work.

Oregoi 
Fir 
Porch Floorim 



We cannot recommend too strongly this Western wood for the di 
pose of porch floors. When clear Soft White Pine Porch lumber becai 
scarce anc* high priced, it became necessary to find something else to ta 
its Place, something that not only would measure up nearest to Soft Pine 
durability but in wearing qualities. That's Fir, and it wears. It wea 
better because it is not as soft as Soft Pine and some other woods now bei 

kni? r fih=t o r ,£°Fi^ £°fi rS ' ™ As + to ^s durability, don't you worry that this clos 
kmt hb-rous Fir of the Western Slope will decay in a hurry. Do you su 
pose we would go to the trouble of hauling lumber all the way across the Ca 
cades and Rocky Mountain Ranges if it was not a durable wood? Wou 
we be foolish enough to pay freight over a distance of 2500 miles or mor 
if it was an inferior article? Don't you worry. Therefore we say again 
r ir has all other woods backed off the boards for the purpose of porch floo 
—bar none, especially if you take the edge grain. It can't sliver and thai 
what you want to avoid on a porch floor. 

. , , Fir ed S e | rain is the only edge grained wood now on the market sui 
able for porch floors, and even flat sawed Fir is less liable to sliver than oth 
flat sawed woods. 

Please bear that in mind too. •

Hardwood Floors are Healthful and Economical. 
A Permanent Sanitary Improvement. 

Hardwood floors are more economical than the average home builder 
realizes, are easily kept smooth and clean. When used in connection with 
rugs a very handsome effect is obtained. 

As all our flooring is run with matched ends, the question of laying a 
hardwood floor is a very simple matter and any lengths, however shorty can 
be utilized, making a floor as substantial as though it was laid in one piece. 
The % inch flooring frakes the place of the old fashioned pine and other soft 
wood floors, practically everlasting. 

The greatest feature of the % inch flooring is its adaptability and 
usefulness for covering old floors, doing away with the worn and yielding 
soft wood floors and musty carpets. _ The result is a strictly "hygienic' 
floor, much more attractive because finished in the natural wood. 

It is a permanent sanitary improvement, -besides adding greatly to 
your renting value. 

Hardwood Flooring — Its Varied Use. 

The Clear grades are suitable for any residence, for there are no higher 
grades of flooring made. For residences the Clear grades of Maple flooring 
are usually ordered for kitchen, hall and bathroom. Oak will be more 
suitable for the dining room, living room, parlor, reception, room, etc., and 
Yellow Pine could be used for the bedrooms, making a very economical floor 
combination. 

Select Maple flooring is mainly used for public halls, stores, hotel cham- 
bers, and wherever a good but not absolutely perfectly clear floor is wanted. 

Factory flooring is recommended only where a good low priced floor is 
wanted. Used extensively for ware-houses, factory buildings and other large 
buildings where strength is of more importance than beauty. 

SUPERIOR MANUFACTURE 

Hardwood Flooring is manufactured from superior kiln dried stock, 
scientifically treated and is as near perfect as modern machinery can make it, 
smoothly run, tongued and grooved on end edges as well as side edges and 
steel polished which gives it the smoothest finish possible. % inch flooring is 
hollow backed and bored for secret nailing. All grades furnished in stan- 
dard lengths and securely : bundled.

Our object in making this special offer is to introduce the best Scraper that brains and 
modern ingenuity can devise, and place them where they will show the best results, at a 
price that is within the reach of all. Remember, this offer is for a limited time only.

The "Adjustable" Scraper can be used by anyone. It is a Quality Machine. It is 
strong, durable, simple in construction, easy of operation and adaptable to any kind of 
practical floor scraping . It can be adjusted to suit the convenience of the operator. 
The blade can be adjusted to any vertical or lateral angle to the floor. The overhead 
weight can be adjusted so that anywhere from 30 to 40 pounds of pressure rests directly on the blade, will scrape right up in the corners, close to the moulding along the wall, and do perfect and 
rapid work on hard or soft wood floors, old or new. Simply push and pull the machine forward and backward in an easy, natural way. 

For finishing work the weight can be moved entirely, leaving but a slight weight upon the blade. Under a uniform pressure, an absolutely true and even cut is insured, leaving a perfectly 
smooth surface. . • t , ■ i. c - r j 

The iron wheels have rubber tires; are mounted on a split axle, so that each wheel operates and any corners or angles can be turned without marking the finished surface. 
The weight of the machine is 125 lbs. The blades are 8 inches wide and are made of Disston's Saw Steel— the best blade material manufactured. With each machine we send complete Instruc- 
tions for operating same. In addition, we also furnish six Blades, Burnisher and Wrench, all guaranteed against defective workmanship. Extra blades furnished at 22c each.

Don't confuse the "ADJUSTABLE" with any other Scraper on the market The "ADJUSTABLE" is in a class by itself. We are using a number of them right here in our own plant, so if 
they did not do all we claim we would not be using them ourselves. ,

Paint is of the highest quality composed of 
the very best materials, absolutely free from 
injurious ingredients that is possible to pro- 
cure; and is manufactured and tested under 
the most trying conditions. The mineral 
pigments are thoroughly ground and re- 
ground with the finest linseed and preserva- 
tive oils obtainable with the most modern 
up-to-date grinding machinery at our own 
plant. This places us in a position to save 
our customers the large profits that your 
local dealer is obliged to make; he can't un- 
derstand how it is possible for us to furnish 
you with our line of Premier Paints at the 
low prices quoted. 

Why take chances in buying your paint 
from a stock that has been on hand for an 
indefinite period. Any experienced painter 
will tell you that paint freshly made up 
(such as ours) is much superior to a paint 
that has been mixed for some time. 

Premier Barn Paint 

Represents a brand so radically different 
from anything ever offered as "Barn Paint," 
it is in a class by itself, it not only forms a 
protective coating (not a penetrating stain 
like most barn paints which leave only the 
stained original wood surface), but with its 
rich, non-fading color contains also a power- 
ful wood preservative which kills wood 
germs and. destructive rot producing agente. 

The Oil in Premier Barn Paint 

Is practically the same as we use in out 
Premier Beady Mixed House Paint. 

Our red shade is the result of our absolute 
control of a natural product of pure iron 
oxide, the most dura Die pigment known. 
The chemical composition and its absolute 
non-fading properties make it impossible to 
duplicate with any other coloring agent. 

Your Barn, Roof, Fences, in fact any 
no . use , on y° ur premises in need of paint 
will be very much improved by using 
Premier Barn Paint. 

A great many manufacturers nowadays 
take and mix a cheap Venetian Red with 
nothing but gloss oil as a thinner. This we 
know is nothing but a cheap imitation of 
varnish, we will admit this combination will 
look as good and in some cases better than 
ours, but its life is short, it will not wear, it 
will fade and crumble in a very short time.

How to Figure Amount of Paint Needed! 



THE COST, or how to figure the amount of paint needed to paint a house, barn or'fence is one of the most important and essential things you should 
know. The familiarizing ones self with the information explained below will go a great way in tending to prevent a short or an excessive order of 
paints, although it is better to be over than short, as you. can always find something or other around the house that requires painting, thereby im- 
proving the appearance of the part painted at practically no cost whatever. 

On new work that has not been painted, one gallon of Premier Ready Mixed Paint will cover about 250 square feet, two coats. On wood that Is 
to be repainted, that is, if it is in fair condition, one gallon will cover 300 square feet, two coats. 



ry /| am of p m ' Should your building measure 40 feet long, 20 feet wide 
and have an average height of 25 feet, you figure as 



PLEASE NOTE that you add together the width and the Length of the 
building, multiply by the average height, then divide by 250, which is the 
covering of one gallon for two coats; and the result, as in the example 
above, is 12 gallons, which is the amount of paint required to coat a house 
of the above size, two coats. 

COST. We sell PREMIER READY MIXED PAINTS in various sized 
cans, and for the building below you would require two 5 gallon cans and

The two 1 gallon cans we furnish at 1.10 per gallon. 2.20

DIRECTIONS FOR USING PREMIER READY MIXED PAINTS 



Stir thoroughly, gradually adding the 



Brush out well and let It dry 



FIRST: The surface must be thoroughly dry. Paint is very often applied to surfaces before it is dry, this causes the paint to blister and 
peel within a few weeks; don't blame the paint, this can happen to any paint. Prepare the surface by giving all knotty or sappy parts a coat of orange 
shellac. Remove all loose or old paint with a scraper and be sure to dust the surface if you want a nice, clean job. 

SECOND: Open the can, then carefully pour off the liquid in an empty can provided for that purpose, 
liquid you poured off; the paint is ready for use after this is done. 

THIRD: For the first coat, reduce the paint to the proportion of one quart of linseed oil to one gallon of paint, 
thoroughly before applying the second coat. Allow 5 to 10 days for drying, 

FOURTH: Putty all nail holes, cracks, etc. Watch carefully for these imperfections before applying the second coat. 

FIFTH: For the second coat apply the paint in its actual thickness, brushing out well. If necessary, thin with Unseed oil. 

Remember the condition of the surface to be Painted has much to do with the results. 

Never apply Paint In cold or wet weather, be sure to allow plenty of time between coats*

as oil itself, hence it can be brushed out to a greater covering 
capacity than any other paint known. Combine this feature 
with the absolute non-fading properties of the colors used and

PREMIER READY MIXED FLOOR PAINT is a specially prepared paint made to resist the wear and tear of shuffling 
feet, heel marks or scratches, the severe tests of alkali soap, hot water, washing and scrubbing; it will not only resist this severe 
action, but must retain the bright, shining surface demanded by the most scrupulous housekeeper, It is the only floor paint to 
buy if you want the most durable and best all around floor paint ever put on the market. 

Mr. Michaelscn, superintendent of our NEW PAINT and VARNISH PLANT has studied the requirements demanded on this par- 
ticular oil and varnish color, and has continually improved upon it by using special high grade ingredients that are known to have the 
best resisting qualities manufactured, regardless of the price. 

This paint dries over night with a high gloss, and will remain dust free, and will be hard enough 
to walk on in 24 hours. No amount of washing will injure the surface, and will never spot white or 
discolor. It is equally desirable for old or new floors. We guarantee that should you use our PREMIER 
READY MIXED FLOOR PAINT you will be highly pleased with the results. 

NEW FLOORS WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY 

PAINTED REQUIRE THREE COATS. Old floors which have been previously 
painted, require two coats. ONE GALLON WILL COVER FROM 300 TO 350 SQUARE FEET, TWO 
COATS, AND FROM 200 TO 250 SQUARE FEET, THREE COATS, AND WILL DRY IN 12 HOURS.

floors it is merely necessary to wash the floors thoroughly, removing the dirt, dust and grease and 
apply the paint 24 hours after washing. The application of our Floor Paint will wonderfully improve 
the appearance of the room and relieve the housewife from constantly scrubbing the floor. A painted 
floor is sanitary and is more easily washed up.

Premier Liquid Wood Filler. 

9- G- 1049. For filling or first-coating all 
kinds of close grained natural woods, such as 
pine, poplar, etc., that have not been previously 
finished. It thoroughly seals up the wood pores 
and effectually prevents suction or the absorption 
of moisture. This material is transparent and does 
not need to be rubbed off or sandpapered before 
applying varnish coats. It does not sink away like 
varnish, but dries on the surface, thus making it 
equal for work of this nature to 2 coats of varnish. 
A coat or two of varnish applied on this work 
produces a really remarkable finish.

Our Premier Lead is non -poisonous and guar- 
anteed to be more durable by far than any pure 
carbonate of lead manufactured. It is carefully 
ground and scientifically formulated mixture of 
lead and zinc ground in pure oil. Instead of using 
common acid corroded " Dutch Lead," such as is 
commonly sold and used, and is the cause of all the 
cases of painters' colic and lead poisoning, we use a 
fire refined lead which will not poison the user if it 
happens to get into the pores of the skin. The zinc 
prevents the lead from chalking and powdering 
or rubbing off on the clothes, as the years go by, and 
this Premier Lead is way anead of ordinary so called 
"Pure" and "Old Dutch Process" White Leads.

tough, elastic finish which prevents plaster or

Premier Varnish Stain 

Stains and Varnishes In One Operation 

Recommended for use over 
a surface already varnished 
or painted, such as old furni- 
ture, varnished or painted 
woodwork. It is necessary, in 
order to obtain the best results, 
to use a stain of a similar shade 
as the old finish. You cannot 
finish a Mahogany chair Light 
Oak by applying Light Oak 
Varnish Stain. If a change of 
color is desired, we would recom- 
mend the use of our Premier 
Gloss Lacquer. By using the 
Ground Color as a first coat and 
the Premier Gloss Lacquer as a 
finishing coat the change of color can be made. 
Premier Varnish Stain dries hard with a high 
luster and is easily applied with a varnish 
brush. It is made in the following colors: Cherry,

BHH ROOM OUTFIT 



STRICTLY "A" GRADE 

BEST QUALITY MADE. 



Cnmnare TAiV Outfit as here illustrated and 
compare M nis yg"ir described with the outfits 
offered by Plumbing Goods Concerns as advertised in 
magazines and elsewhere. Then you will readily appreci^ 
ate the great value we offer in this outfit and the large 
javing in price we make to you. 

We appreciate the fact that there are Outfits sold at 
jven a lower price than "Our Majestic" Outfit, however, 
we assure you there is no outfit ol its equal quality or 
of such fine appearance that is ottered at anywhere 
near our low price of $37.50. Our special low price is 
based on the actual factory cost, with but one small profit 
added. 

When you take into consideration that every, item on 
this Outfit is strictly "A grade" and perfect, this means 
you receive the highest grade of material and the best of 
workmanship, then you will agree with us that this is the 
lowest priced Outfit on the market today. 

We positively guarantee this Outfit to satisfy you in 
every way, or we will cheerfully refund your money with 
any freight charges paid out by you. 
Rs**h Tnh furnished with this Outfit is a strictly "A" 
. . Grade, 5 ft. .heavy cast iron Tub with 

wide roll rim. The Tub is 30 inches wide and is 
heavily coated with white porcelain enamel, which is 
thoroughly baked on. 

The very best grade of gray cast iron is used in the 
manufacture, and the Tub is furnished complete with 
ornamental legs. The Tub is very graceful in appearance 
and one of the best designs on the market. 

The Tub is furnished complete with No. 4 } Fuller pattern nickel-plated 
combination bath faucet, marked "Hot'* and "Cold" with a nickel -plated 

i'ewel cup. Has highly nickel -plated connected waste and overflow and two 
reavy nickel-plated supply pipes with nickel-plated floor flanges. Has 
nickel-plated chain and rubber stopper. 

Cfn<tt>t sent wit % this 0utfit is strictly "A" grade, low-down pattern, 
Z _. i m JP rov ed type, and one that will pass the most rigid inspection. 
The Closet Tank is made of Golden Oak, thoroughly seasoned and highly 
polished. Has a heavy lining of copper. All fittings and trimmings are 
made of heavy brass, and it is furnished with the Douglas pattern valve, 
which is positive in action and made of such high grade material, by skilled 
mechanics that it never gets out of order. The water is shut off by a rubber 
ball set into the seat of the flush valve, and if the occasion arises to repair 
the valve, all that is necessary is to simplv unscrew the rubber ball from the 
rod and screw in a new ball at a very slight expense; an exceedingly easy 
operation, that requires no previous experience. This Tank has a china 
push button in front, which adds to the appearance of the Tank. The tank 
is attached to the wall by our improved concealed wali hanger. 

The Closet Bowl is an "A" grade Syphon wash- down pattern of very fine 
quality, strictly modern and well proportioned. 

The Closet Seat is oak finish and well made. The trimmings consist of a 
heavy nickel-plated supply pipe and nickel-plated 2 inch flush elbow con- 
nection and nickel-plated screws for fastening closet bowl to floor, making 
the Outfit complete above the floor line. 

/ at} at or v f un u sne d wit h this Outfit is strictly "A" grade and made of 
*£jfi£*"**i£ the very best grade of cast iron. Is heavily coated with 
high grade white porcelain enamel, which is thoroughly baked on. 

The Slab of Lavatory measures 18 inch x 21 inch with 8 inch back and 
a "D" pattern bowl 10 inch x 14 inch. Has a neat roll rim with no sharp 
edges of corners, which is an improvement over the old style Marble Slab 
Lavatory; This Lavatory has an elegant and massive appearance and is an 
jmament to any Bath Room. 

Furnished complete with depressed Soap Cup and 1\ inch nickel-plated 

"S" trap with waste to floor and floor flanges. Has two nickel-plated luw- 

down compression basin cocks with china tops marked "Hot" and "Cold" 

and with nickel-plated chain and rubber stopper. Has two nickel-plated $ 

inch supply pipes from basin to floor with nickel-plated floor flanges.

the unsightly brackets.

CAST IRON BOILERS ARE MOST 
EFFICIENT 



Cast iron is certainly the proper material to use for manufacturing 
boilers for house heating. It is all right to make boilers of steel when you 
are compelled to. Steel is the only practical material to use when you are 
building a boiler for power purposes and one which will have to stand up 
to a pressure of 100 to 200 or sometimes 300 pounds; but when it comes 
to a house heating boiler, in which the pressure will at the most never 
exceed 10 pounds, it is certainly advisable to sacrifice the mere matter of 
tensile strength of the material for more desirable advantages, such as 
durability, more efficient design, etc., which are features of our cast iron 
Perfection Boilers. #«14iia Una I mijJ 



THESE BOILERS BURN ANY 
KINO OF COAL 



You can burn any kind of coal in these cast iron boilers ; hard coal or 
■oft coal. The great advantage which these boilers have as a soft coal 
burner lies in the ease with which they can be cleaned. The entire clean- 
ing of the flues is done from the front of the boiler ; simply open the clean, 
out door and run the flue brush through each flue opening two or three 
times and the flues are bound to be cleaned in the most thorough manner 
possible. When this is done once every two or three days the utmost 
efficiency of the fuel will be obtained. Here is the great disad- 
vantage of many boilers, When soft coal is used and a large 
amount of soot is generated, it is a very hard matter to keep t he- 
flue surfaces properly cleaned at all points so that the full 
amount of heat will be taken up from the fuel. The simplicity 
of the flue arrangement and also the ease with which these 
boilers can be cleaned, are their strongest points. Note that 
the entire fire pot is surrounded by water. The cold water 
being supplied to the bottom of the boiler gradually becomes 
heated, rises to the top and is taken of! here with proper 
arrangement of piping to supply the various radiators. 




THE ROCKING GRATES 



Every grate bar in our boilers is mounted on an axis and 
connects with a common connecting bar underneath. This 
connecting bar is attached to a lever located at the side of the 
boiler as shown in these illustrations and by operating this 
lever every grate bar in the entire boiler can be made to rock 
and the top of the grate surface on which the fire bed rests is 
converted into a veritable grinding machine when these grates 
are being shaken and it only takes very little shaking of these 
grates to get all of the surplus ashes out of the fire bed and get 
the fire going with a bright red heat through the entire grate 
surface of the boiler. These grates positively prevent any dead 
corners in these boilers, as any ashes that might collect in these 
corners will always find its way down, and once it reaches these 
grinding grates, it is bound to be discharged into the ash box. 



The Boiler illustrated on this page is 
out No. 17-D-178 (eight sections) with 
complete steam trimmings*

HOT AIR FURNACES

BUYS THIS 
FURNACE 
COMPLETE 



BURNS ANYTHING COMBUSTIBLE 

Tlie great feature of this furnace is that it will burn 
anything combustible. The large firing door and large 
roomy fire pot, the peculiar shape of the radiator dome 
permits you to burn anything from large logs, tree 
stumps, etc., to cobs, rubbish, broken boxes, etc., or 
anything that you may have to burn and get rid of. 
Here is a furnace that will never require cleaning. 
It is practically self-cleaning. Should any soot, etc., 
collect around the radiator drum in this furnance, it 
is bound to burn off of its own accord, with the result 
that the radiator drum of this furnace is always 
absolutely clean, making it the most efficient heating 
furnace on the market. 

WHIRLING DRAFT 

You can start a brisk fire in this furnace in a few 
minutes with light fuel, such as cobs, newspapers, shav- 
ings, or anything of that kind and in five minutes 
you can feel the result in your rooms. Here is another 
great feature of this furnace which distinguishes it and 
puts it in a class by itself. As a red hot rapid heater. 
It has no equal. Fire pot of this furnace is cast iron, 
cast in two separate pieces as shown, to provide for 
expansion and contraction, etc. The diving flue creates 
a whirling draft which keeps all parts of the radiator 
drum evenly heated at all times. 

THE HIGH ASH PIT 

Like our Economy Furnace, we have equipped this 
furnace with a special high ash pit which renders burn- 
ing out of the grates a practical impossibility. Each 
furnace furnished complete with casing, pitch bonnet 
trimmings, etc., including cast iron water pan, doors, 
etc., with the exception of the smoke pipe and shoe. 
These will come extra.

NEW US, WATER AW STEAM PIPE 

G-G-l. This pipe is brand new, fully 
tested and guaranteed. ^fCad .^Ml' T n h d . IS? $ 

the Pipe is always determined by its inside diameter. It comes in random lengths ranging 
from 16 to 21 foot, that is, we sell it only in full lengths just as it comes from the mill and any 
specifications calling for exact lengths must be charged for, extra for threading as per specifi- 
cations shown below. We will, however, fill your order for lengths as nearly as possible accord- 
ing to your requirements. Each length threaded on both ends, fitted with coupling on one end. 

The followin&prices are for full lengths only and where it is ordered in cut or specified lengths 
there will be an additional charge for the threading at both ends. (See table below.) No coup- 
lings are furnished with pipe cut or ordered in special lengths. Our quotations below are 
based on latest market prices and are exceedingly low. We cannot make a firm price on pipe, 
and all quotations made are subject to market changes. 

Our prices are for quantities up to 1,000 feet. We solicit special inquiries in large quantities. 
We will quote freight prepaid prices on application.

PIPE CASINGS 

6 - G ■« 7 . We have a large quantity of overhauled lap wel- 
ded wrought casing which is as good as new. The threads are 
newly cut and each length is fitted with a new coupling. It is not as 
heavy as the standard pipe, but it will stand equally as much and even 
greater pressure. 

This casing can be used for almost any purpose for which standard 
black pipe is used, and it is especially recommended for water, gas, 
and oil lines. Owing to the fact that it is lighter than the standard 
pipe, it has finer threads. Regular casing threads 14 to the inch. In 
connection with this casing we can furnish a full line of standard fit- 
tings liiiich you will find quoted under the head of "Casing Fittings." 
These fittings being made to work in connection with the casing.

which should always be 
made over a drilled or driven 
well, so that easy access can 
be had to the cylinder for 
repairs. The well driller 
can arrange to have the cas- 
ing cut to within 4J feet of 
the surface, or it can be cut 
off with a cold chisel after 
Bub-well is dug. It can then 
be closed water tight around 
the pump with

100 Years' Experience Proves 

That Metal Steel and Iron Covering is the best Covering that exists for Roofing, 
Siding and Ceiling purposes. 

The ordinary plain painted sheet iron has been in use for over a century 
and by every comparison has proved itself the best for all purposes, where mil 
protection combined with durability and economy are sought. It excells all 
other coverings and is practically without fault. 

There are many instances where iron roofs in first class state of preservation 
now exist, that were laid from twenty to fifty years ago and outside of painting 
them once every three to five years, have been practically without repair. Of 
course very much depends on the thickness of the iron and whether the roofing 
is made of painted or galvanized material. We fully described on the bot- 
tom of this page, the painted and galvanized steel sheets. 

Its Merits Are Numerous 

The particular advantages of the use of Metal Roofing are: 
PRICE. Metal Roofing is cheaper than Wood Shingles. Our low prices 
put it practically on an equal basis with Felt or Tarred Roofing. 

ENDURANCE. It is proven by instances on record that Steel Roofing will 
last as long as fifty years, while the so-called Ready Roofings, now being 
introduced to the public, have never had an opportunity to prove their value 
or lasting quality. As compared to Ready Roofing, whether rubber surfaced 
or felt, cost considered. Metal Roofing will outlast it five to one. 

Furthermore, Patents Prepared or Composition Roofing cracks and curies with 
age and Tarred roofings rot and spoil. Most Ready Roofings soften in the warm 
air or sunshine and stick to your feet when walked upon. 

FIRE PROOF. While a great many fires originate on a wood shingle roof 
or a felt roof, Steel Roofing is fire proof. This special point is reason enough to 
show the vast superiority of Steel Roofing. 

LIGHTNING PROOF. The use of Metal Roofing is strongly advocated 
by underwriters. A building covered with iron or steel, struck by lightning, 
has never been known to be damaged. The reason for this is the bolt striking 
the metal scatters the electricity and this leaves no damaging effects whatever. 
Farmers who require a good roof on their barn ought to appreciate this. 
Take it as a rule, their barns are full of grain and hay at certain seasons of the 
year and cannot always be covered by insurance. 

SIMPLICITY OF LAYING. Steel Roofing is easy to lay, requiring no experi- 
ence. We illustrate on the following pages the simple manner of laying the 
different styles of Steel Roofing. Except in the case of the Standing Seam 
Roofing, no tools beyond an ordinary hatchet or hammer are required. 

Slate Roofing requires a steep pL-ch and a heavy, expensive structure to 
support it. It weighs almost seven times as much as steel Roofing. 
It breaks in freezing and thawing and from heat of nearby fires. It costs 
twice as much and is exceedingly expensive to keep in repair.

WHICH TO USE? UNPAINTED, PAINTED OR GALVANIZED STEEL SHEETS. 



Unpainted Steel Sheets or Plain Surface 

are the bare sheets, just as when rolled at the 
rolling mill and generally used when our customers 
wish to coat them with white wash or a special color 
pf paint. ^ m^m^~ 



Painted Steel Sheets are the plain surfaced 
sheets covered with a heavy coat of pure red- 
oxide mineral paint. They are the standard of 
metal roofing and good enough for all ordinary 
purposes. 



Galvanized Steel Sheets are rust proof. The 
are plain or unpainted sheets covered with a coatin 
of zinc and tin, whi ch m akes th? sheets lastin 
and permanent. 9SMiP"(See description below 



WE RECOMMEND GALVANIZED STEEL SHEETS; "THEY ARE RUST PROOF." 



From over thirty years practical experieece in the metal roofing trade and 
having seen roofing of various forms under the most critical tests, we un- 
hesitatingly recommend to our patrons Galvanized Bust-Proof 
Steel Roofing, in preference to the unpainted or painted steel roof and 
advise our patrons by all means to buy the galvanized. 



HOW OUR STEEL SHEETS ABE GALVANIZED 

To our many customers, who are not familiar with the galvanizing process, we deem it best to herewith 
live a. brief description with a crude illustration how steel sheets are galvanized. 

Steel Sheets when in the process of being rolled to proper thickness, accumulate more or less scale 
which adheres to the sheet and in time peals off and naturally after the sheet has been painted it will carry 
away the coating when a scale peals on after a roof is laid, so the steel sheets before galvanized are placed 
in a tank, containing a solution of sulphuric acid and water which pickles the sheets and removes all the 
scales and foreign substances and any surface rust that might nave accumulated, cleaning the sheet 
so that the pores in the metal are open. 

The next process is taking the sheets from the pickle vat, washing them off in a tank of clean water, 
removing any traces of acid from the pickling process. 

The third operation is placing the washed sheets 



We are not only speaking from experience but there are many gooi 
sound reasons for our recommending Galvanized Steel Sheets. 

Galvanizing when properly done becomes a part of the material ar 
therefore serves as protection against the elements and preserves the li 
of the roof, hence when you lay a galvanized steel roof or siding, you ha^ 
secured the most serviceable and economical roof possible to buy. 




Above shows the method of pickling or remov- 
ing the scale from steel sheets; but for lack 
of room we do not illustrate the washing of 
sheets or emerging in the bath of muriatic acid. 




The galvanizing pot containing molten 
metal; heated to about 630 degrees Fahrenheit, 
into which sheets are dipped and coated. 



into a vat containing a solution of muriatic acid 
which acts as a flux or a binder when the sheet is 
being coated with spelter, that is being galvanized. 

The fourth operation is drying the sheet after being dipped in the muriatic acid bath. 

In the fifth operation the sheet Is dipped into a pot or tank containing a molten body of spelt 
(which is zinc) and a small percentage of pure tin, which sinks into the pores and readily adheres to tl 
steel sheets, result being that the steel sheets get a heavy coating of this anti-rust metal, viz; spelter ai 
tin, spelter being a form of zinc. When the steel sheet comes from the bath and strikes the air, it gets 
spangled and bright appearance. After the sheets are taken from the bath of molten metal, they a 
patent leveled which removes all buckles. 

As described above, all our steel sheets are heavily galvanized by the hand, old style proce* 
which gives a very heavy and absolutely the best coating.

criptions of easiest manner to lay properly and 
secure a water tight roof. 





Corrugated Steel SheetS. Begin to lay the sheets from the eave, at lower 
* . left hand corner, projecting one corrugation over 

iide with two to four inch projection over eaves. Hammer projecting side corrugation 
down against edge of sheath ing, nailing it in place. Nail across sheet near the eaves. 
Place second sheet to the left of first sheet, lapping one corrugation. Continue until 
row is finished, then start on the second row, and so on until job is done. 



"V" Crimped Steel Sheets 



are most simple to apply. We recommend 
place sheathing 4 inches apart under the "V" 
Crimped Roofing and by using wooden "V" sticks, you make a perfectly water proof 
roof. 

To lay, begin at the lower corner of the eave and end of the building and lay 
the sheets from the eave to the ridge and nail through the crimp every 8 inches. At 
the end laps, use four nails to the lap. 




Steel Brick Siding 



is very easy to lay. First take a level and chalk line and 
strike level of the building. Start at the lower comer of 
the building allowing 8 inch space for the corner brick finish, as shown on next 
page, thus allowing the trueing up of the corner in case the building is out of 
plumb. Then complete the first course of sheets, continuing until the job is com- 
pleted, lapping each sheet so that the course of the bricks in the sheets are uniform 



Beaded Steel SheetS s material can De applied directly to studding or if 

" preferred, can be laid on sheathing boards. Sheets 
should be lapped one to two inches at end and over one bead at side. Can be 
applied perpendicularly or horizontally as preferred. When applied to studding or 
joists, these should be placed the proper distance apart. Many of our customers also 
lay Beading Ceiling or siding over old plaster. Gives a store a very neat appearance. 



i 




Steel Sheet Shin? eS We recommena \ wood sheathing roof before laying 
* w steel shingles or if to be laid on a wood shingle roof, it 
is best to remove the wood shingles. Ends of sheets are lapped over one course of 
the shingles. Sides of the sheets are nailed to wood "V" strips. 

To lay begin at the left-hand corner of eaves and end of building and lay the 
sheets from the eave to the ridge and nail through crimp. Nail all end laps. 



Standing Seam Steel Sheets 2S> K the 



complicated form of Steel 
to apply. Special tools are 

needed which we loan you free of charge. _ (See next page.) Standing Seam 
Sheets are generally used on roofs of very slight pitch. 

TO lay this roof properly, extreme care must be used. However, we send 
explicit instructions with every order, so that you can lay the roofing without any 
trouble.

YOU DO NOT TAKE A CHANCE IF YOU BUY RAWHIDE RUBBER ROOFING. 

There is a reason and it is not a trade secret why rawhide roofings are 
superior to all others. Tou are entitled and we want you to know just how 
rawhide roofing is made and why it will outlast all others. All Prepared Roofings 
are made on a wool felt base, which should be manufactured from woolen rags, but unfor- 
tunately felt can be mixed with paper and the cost reduced to the extent of enabling the 
unscrupulous manufacturer putting out an inferior roofing that to all superficial appear- 
ance is as good as honestly made roofing. Such felt will not take as much saturation as 
an absolutely pure wool felt and lacks the long fiber that gives it wear, resisting qualities 
and toughness that is so necessary to the life of roofing. 



"RAWHIDE ROOFING IS AS TOUGH AS ITS NAME" 

Because It is Made of Pure Wool Felt and Saturated 
with Pure Asphalt. 



Pure asphalt saturation is absolutely necessary to make a strictly high 
grade lasting roofing. It is here that manufactures have another chance to lower the 
grade, and you will only know it when your roof shows early signs of wear and proves 
generally unsatisfactory. Do not condemn Prepared Roofing on account of having had an 
experience of this kind. If you have never used prepared roofing or are skeptical, don't 
pay for experience — it is not necessary. We safeguard your interests. You cannot go 
wrong if you buy rawhide roofing. It is guaranteed to be saturated with pure Asphalt. 

Rawhide Roofing contains absolutely no tar, oil or any other substitutes 
for asphalt. Tar cracks in cold weather and melts under the heat of the summer sun. 
Oil quickly evaporates, leaving the roofing dry and brittle. Therefore, it is bound to 
buckle and crack. There is no satisfactory substitute for Asphalt. 

We control the entire output of Rawhide Roofing and keep close watch to see 
that not an ounce of inferior material is used. Every car of felt and asphalt is put under 
the most rigid test and is rejected if found in any way inferior to our standard, which 
means, one hundred per cent pure. 

We Buy, Pay For and Accept Only the Best Material, That is Why 

You Get the Best Roofing Possible to Produce When 

You Order Our Rawhide Roofing. 

Why we are able to supply a better roofing at a lower price than you can 
possibly buy elsewhere: Our ability to dispose of immense quantities makes it possible to 
negotiate very favorable contracts. All manufactured lines have their seasons. Our out- 
put is assured and our capital is large, enabling us to contract for material sufficient for 
the entire year, when the market is low and the manufacturer needs both money and busi- 
ness to keep his factory running. There is another and bigger advantage in being able to 
contract in this manner, and that is, the factories not being crowded with orders, more care 
is taken in the manufacture of material and insures a uniform run and properly seasoned 
roofing. In addition, enables us to make prompt shipments. 

The appearance of the surface of Our Rawhide Rubber Roofing Is like rubber. 
This surface is made by a heavy coat of strictly pure Asphalt being applied to the saturated 
wool felt and passed between heavy hot rolls under a great pressure, the surface being 
exactly the same on both sides. 

The cost of laying Rawhide Roofing is a very small item. In fact, a knife and a hammer are the only tools required. 

Rawhide Rubber Roofing can be laid over shingles and put on flat or pitched roofs. 

Each roU contains 108 square feet, sufficient to coyer one square, including laps. 

We Furnish Free large head nails and sufficient Asphalt Cement for laps packed securely In each roll of our Rawhide Rubber Roofing. 




We guarantee that every roll of Rawhide Rubber Roofing Is made on an all wool felt base of the highest grade that is saturated and 
surfaced with pure asphalt and does not contain coal tar. If laid in accordance with our simple directions we will replace without cost to you any Rawhide 
Rubber Roofing that may prove defective within the following terms of years: 
1-Ply Rawhide Rubber Roofing, Six Tears. 2-Ply Rawhide Rubber Roofing, Nine Years. 3-Ply Rawhide Rubber Roofing, Twelve Tears. 



We do not impose any impossible conditions. All that is required is that it be laid smoothly and properly nailed and cemented at the laps. 
Anyone can do this. Our guarantee does not cover any roofing that becomes torn or is blown off by the wind. 

Rawhide Roofing will outlast our guarantee by many years. With proper care Rawhide Rubber Roofing will last longer than any other 

rubber surfaced roofing now on the market. Write for free samples of this Guaranteed Roofing.

oofing on the 
market. 

It ts the result of years of careful thought and ex- 
periment on the part of manufacturers who are recognized 
in the Roofing field as being peers in their line. 

We consider It the finest material to use on Homes 
Barns, Ware-houses, Stores and in fact on buildings of 
every kind where long service is desired, and where econo- 
my must be given consideration. The Price is surely rea- 
sonable enough— the quality is the best — Read carefully 
the description which follows. 

"RAWHIDE STONE FACED GOLD 
m MEDAL ROOFING" is made from 
the finest and best long fibre woolen felt obtainable. It is 
of an extra heavy weight and strength. Each of these 
fibres is carefully and mechanically saturated with the 
greatest water proofing compound kr 
World — Pure Asphalt. 

After the process of Pure Asphalt saturation is com- 
pleted it is given an additional mechanical treatment re- 
quiring great time and care to make it still more water 
proof and durable. 

It then passes to a bath of especially prepared high- 
grade coating which protects the fibres from the weather 
wear. Thereafter it is coated on both sides with a fine 
powdered marble, which gives the beautiful appearance 
shown in illustration and so much admired by those who 
have purchased it in the past. This coating also material- 
ly adds to its fire proofing qualities. 

The expensive nature of the coating used to protect 
the long fibre wooien felt is one of the real causes for its 
lasting qualities. This coating is free from any oils that will 
discolorize the beautiful surface. 

Great care is used in the manufacture of this Roofing, as it 
is necessary that the fine marble surfacing is so well imbedded 
into the coating as to make it difficult to remove or rub off 
this marble effect. ; 5 9 ^ s ow vq'W 

We strongly recommend the 
_ purchase of this Roofing, it 
appearance of any building— it is of the highest 
quality manufactured— it is manufactured from Pure Asphalt 
it is far superior and less expensive to apply than shingles or 
any other kind of roofing — it will retain indefinitely its beautiful 
appearance — its water proofing qualities are the best 
— the direct rays of the sun have but little^effect be- 
cause of the careful refining to which the asphalt coat- 
ing is subjected — there is nothing which can be drawn 
out of the saturation that will discolorize the fine 
marble finish.— our TWENTY YEAR GUARANTEE 
protects you.

Not Affected by the Heat or Cold and will not Blister or Crack 



ABSOLUTELY FIRE PROOF 



GUARANTEED FOR 10 YEARS 



A BROAD STATEMENT BUT A TRUE ONE— Rawhide PEBBLE Coat Roofing is 
Much More Serviceable than any other style of Gravel, Grit, Flint or other kinds of rough 
surfaced felt roofings on the market. 

RAWHIDE PEBBLE COAT ROOFING IS SURFACED WITH LAKE MICHIGAN PEBBLES 

Washed, screened and of uniform size. Other roofing, surfaced with crushed Granite, Grit, Marble 
Slate, rough irregular size Gravel, cannot commence to stand the wear nearly as well as RAWHIDE 
PEBBLE COAT ROOFING. 



The Reason Why 



BECAUSE THE PEBBLE COAT SURFACING IS NOT MADE OF CRUSHED MATERIAL 

having sharp edges that cut into the felt and thereby weaken the fiber. So that you will fully under- 
stand the superiority of RAWHIDE PEBBLE COAT ROOFING, it is necessary for you to know how 
roof surfacing is applied, which is as follows: The saturated felt is run through a special heavy hot 
coating asphalt. The surfacing is then put on and the roofing passes through heavy rolls under great 

Sressure, imbedding the surfacing into the asphalt. Your own good judgment will tell you if surfacing 
as sharp edges (and all crushed material has), that it is bound to cut through the asphalt into the felt. 
In addition to this, it is impossible to crush it to a uniform size. Therefore, the surface is not smooth 
or evenly covered. The finer particles do not adhere as well to the asphalt and soon wear off and the 
result is an unsatisfactory roof. 



EASY TO I HY You can lay Pebble Coat Rawhide Roofing as easily 
■-nvi iv lhi as any ther prepared Roofing. It is made with an 
improved smooth edge, 2£ inches wide, without the pebble coat surface. 

When laid, it has a solid pebble coat surface. The seams can scarcely be seen. 



HOW MA OF Rawhide Pebble Coat Roofing, is built in three separate 
ii viw mnvk layers — the first layer being extra weight pure wool felt, 
saturated w ; th pure asphalt — the second layer being asphalt and the third 
being a pebble coat finish. Put up in rolls of 108 square feet; complete with 
large head nails, and liquid cement for laps. 



WE GUARANTEE Raw . nide "Pebble Coat" Roofing lor 10 years. All the materials that enter into the construction of this Roofing, are the 
same" high grade as used in Rawhide Rubber Roofing. We guarantee that it does not contain any coal tar. If laid in accordance with 



our simple directions, we will replace without cost to you, any Rawhide Pebble Coat Roofing that may prove defective within 10 years from date of purchase. 



WE DO NOT IMPOSE ANY IMPOSSIBLE CONDITIONS. All that is required is that it be laid smoothly and properly nailed and cemented at 
laps. Any one can do this. Our guarantee does not cover any roofing that becomes torn oris blown off by the wind. 

RAWHIDE PEBBLE COAT ROOFING WILL LONG OUTLAST OUR GUARANTEE. With proper care it should easily last from fifteen to twent v 
years.

"Rubberized Galvo" Roofing 90c to $1.20 Per 108 Sq. Ft. 



ROOTING 



Our "Rubberized Galvo*' Roofing is of superior 
quality. It is practically the same- as our Rawhide 
Rubber Roofing, being made from pure asphalt and 
positively contains no coal tar. It is furnished direct from 
the manufacturers and is a regular grade made by them with 
exception of that instead of a continuous piece as Rubber 
Hoofing generally comes, it is put up 2 or 3 pieces to the roll, 
commonly termed, "mill ends." This does not in any 
sense injure same from the standpoint of service. The fact 
that it Is not made in one piece, does not lessen its wearing 
qualities or make any difference in its appearance. 

We guarantee it to be a strictly high grade class of 
Roofing. Owing to confidential reasons, we cannot tell 
you the name ol the manufacturers as it would lessen the 
sale of their regular brands. 



The quality of this roofing is far superior to most of the Rubber 
Roofing that is being generally offered. This gives you an opportunity of 
buying otherwise perfect roofing at prices that mean a big saving to you. 

"Rubberized Galvo" Roofing has a rubber surface on both sides 
and is pliable and wear resisting. It is weather and lightning 
proof and can be used in any climate, as it is not affected by heat or 
cold, acids, alkali or gases and will not taint rain water. 

When roof has been laid about one to two years, it should 
have a coating of our "Protecto Asphalt Paint," which will protect the 
roof and cause it to last for many years. 

It is adapted for roofs of any kind and the 3 ply can be laid safely 
over shingles. No tools required to lay, beyond a hammer and a 
pocket knife. Each roll is complete with large head nails and liquid 
cement for laps. It is put up in 1 and 2 square rolls, sufficient to lay 100 
or 200 square feet with a liberal allowance for laps.

FASTENERS. 

•7-G-437. Suitable for wood 4 

or brick buildings. Superior to 

any other style of conductor pipe 

hooks or fasteners Made of heavi- 
ly galvanized twisted wire. The 

principal features are, that owing 

to the construction of this hanger 

it keeps the pipe from coming in 

contact with the building, making 

it possible to paint behind the con- 
ductor pipe preventing the moisture 
from rotting the siding and corrod- 
ing the pipe. They are easily ap- 
plied; simply require nailing and 
tightening up with a common plier. 
There is no danger of splitting the 
siding as is the case when using the 
conductor hooks that have to be 
driven in.

p^T-WJffi Heavy Flat Galvanized Hoops and Lug&*W^ 
Durability ^ 0r manv years Washington Fir has been used throughout the Northwest in the manufacture of tanks of all kino's, 
•— * also in the construction of large water flumes, and on account of its wonderful durability it is fast becoming the 
recognized standard tank timber. The great Railroads throughout the country are using Washington Fir Tanks 
almost exclusively, and this after thorough tests in competition with all kinds of timber that have heretofore been used, and it has 
been de monstrated that the Washington Fir is superior to any other timber for tank construction. 

$3tF~ These Tanks Cannot Be Injured by animals kicking or wagons running into them, which destroys steel Tanks. 
Construction Madeo^trictly clear Washington Fir, with Heavy Galvanized Steel Hoops and Lugs. This is a feature 
^^^^m^^^^m that you will not find in tanks of other manufacture. Galvanized hoops and lugs are used owing to the fact 
that they are practically imperishable, and will outlast the ordinary black hoops, therefore in furnishing the galvanized 
hoops and lugs on our Washington Fir Tanks, it makes a combination that will defy the ravages of time and weather. 
The Joints of our Tanks ^°^ 1 . bottoms and staves are jointed on a special machine, which enables the operator to cut 
^^ m ~ m ^^ m ^ mm T mm ^ m ^'^ m the joint absolutely true, making a much better joint to hold water thin the tongued and 
grooved joint. Owing to the nature of Washington Fir, the saw, when cutting the joint, leaves the edges slightly fuzzy, and, when 
the edges are clamped together and drawn up tight by the hoops, this joint is of a velvet appearance and makes a first-class packing. 

No Tongues or Grooves to Break OH Tongued and grooved joints depend on the swelling of the wood to make them water tight and are liable to be damaged in transit or 

i—^m—*mm^^m^mmm^—^m^^^^m^^mm may be accidentally split off in erecting the tank, hence we claim that the joint used in the construction of our tanks is much better. 

Size 11 in. stock is dressed to about 1| in. thick and 2 in. stock is about 1J in. thick. On tanks 8 feet or larger in diameter we recommend that they be made of the 2 in. stock. 

Fr ee Sample On request we will be pleased to mail you simple of Washington Fir, We ship tanks Knock Down direct from factory located in Wisconsin.

STEEL TUBIOR COLUMNS 

"A New Feature in Steel Columns." 

To meet the growing demand for a low priced Steel 
Tubular Column, we are now prepared to furnish a column 
of this kind, which will meet with the most varied require- 
ments. 

We furnish these columns made of Standard Fine. 
also of Light Tubing. 

HOW TO GAIN ADDITIONAL STRENGTH. 

The columns made of light tubing are generally used, 
where it is intended to fill them with concrete. Any 
column can be filled with concrete at a very small expense 
and when so filled they are stronger than any cast iron 
column of the same size. 

The standard pipe columns can be treated in a like 
manner, although where it is intended that they be filled 
with concrete, we recommend using the light tubular col- 
umns, which are less exoensive and will answer just. as 
well as the pipe columns under these conditions. 

The light tubular columns are very desirable where a

STANDARD AUTOMATIC COAL CHUTES 



The Standard Automatic Coal Chutes are designed to be placed in the celler wall 
the same as a window for depositing coal, wood or other articles into the basement. 

No modern building is now complete without a heating system that requires the 
storage of fuel in the basement and if you pass fuel through an ordinary cellar window 
it soon becomes disfigured, if not tetotally demolished. The building is also soiled by 
thjs method. 

The body of this chute is made of heavy steel and the door and frame of the best 
quality of gray cast iron. All paits are thoroughly painted before shipment. The 
hopper can be moved if desired. When the door closes the hopper swings back into 
the body of the chute and allows the door to close against the wall. 

We furnish these Coal Chutes in the following sizes:

Latest Design 



The "Konkrete King" Block 
Machine has all of the good 
features of other machines and 

in addition has improvements that make it the most 

perfect Block Machine on the market today. It has 

a wrought iron adjustable rocker arm with an eccentric 

handle which when drawn down prevents the mould 

from getting out of square, insuring a perfectly true 

block. There are hundreds of other machines offered 

for sale but none of them are equipped so that a square 

block is assured each time without spending valuable 

time in adjusting and truing up the machine. 

|l . ■■ The "Konkrete King" „Block 

UOnSl rUCMOn Machine makes blocks on the 

™^^™"™*^^^» face down principle. In this way 

the blocks can be made with a cement face of a mixture 

of three to one or two to one, and the balance of the 

block made of a mixture of 5 to 1. The face of the 

block is the part that is exposed to the weather and 

concrete with a large proportion of cement, affords 

better resistance to frost and dampness. However, 

the entire block can be made of one mixture. Also, 

when it is desired to color the face of the block, this 

can be done and the balance of the block made without 

coloring, saving the expense of coloring the entire block. 
There are no cogs, no springs or other devices to get 

out of order in the "Konkrete King" Block Machine. 

It operates so simple that a boy can understand it and 

use the machine without previous experience. Frame 

and flasks are made of a very high grade of tough gray 

cast iron, strongly bolted and braced, making the ma- 
chine most durable. All lugs on the face plates are of 

chilled iron, giving them the needed strength so as not to break when sub- 
jected to rough handling.- Flask consists of front and back wall, two core 

end doors, face plates, two impioved rocker arms and pallet fitted in 

the most workmanlike manner. End doors are hinged to the face plates, 

which opens easily when releasing the block. 

The capacity of the "Konkrete King" Machine varies as to 
skill and experience of operator, also whether concrete is 
mixed by hand or machinery. One man can turn out on an 

average of 100 blocks a day and two men can easily turn out 250 blocks. 

Practice increases speed. The faster the material is delivered to the block 

makers, the larger the output. 

Mac* f Ar iha Maaau the "KONKRETE KING" IS THE MOST 
IffOSI lOr IHe mOliey COMPLETE OUTFIT for the money. 
^ — ^^« It is a complete factory in itself and has a widely 
varied range of work. With it you can make more different sizes and faces of 
blocks with a fewer number of parts than any other machine on the market. 
We invite comparison and believe you will be convinced that we are giving the 
greatest value ever offered in Concrete Block Machinery.

dlllgEG 0l QOUBie VOre BLOCK MACHINE with either single 

^^^m/^^^^m^^mmmmmmmmm^m^ or double core flask as ordered, unless 
otherwise stated machine Is equipped with a single core flask. KON- 
KRETE KING is made in three sizes and so constructed that any one of 
the three flasks can be used on one standard, which is a great advantage should 
you wish to make blocks of different size. All that is necessary is to order 
flask attachment wanted. Are furnished either single or double core, in 
three different sizes for making blocks 8x8x16, 8x10x16 and 8x12x16 inches.

EXTRA FLASKS FOR "KONKRETE KING" BLOCK MACHINES 

All flasks are made to fit one stand. The illustrations show both single and double core and as 
explained before these flask attachments can be used on any KONKRETE KING stand and are 
attached without difficulty. For instance if you should order an 8x8x16 inch KONKRETE BLOCK 
MACHINE and wish to make 8x10x16 inch blocks, it is not necessary to order a complete new 
machine, but just the flask attachment of that size; or if you wish to make the two sizes of blocks 
order the Machine and one extra flask attacment. We recommend making the two different sizes 
as the larger blocks can be used for foundations and the smaller blocks for the upper portion of the 
wall. (Shipped from factory Central Wisconsin.)

SAFETY DOOR FASTENERS. 

Can be instantly thrown Into 
and out of position. When in 
position door can be left ajar 
for the purpose of ventilation, 
without fear of intruders, as the door cannot be opened 
further than the length of the bolt, making it absolutely im- 
possible for any one to force his way in. When locked at 
night it is as secure as any bolt. When thrown out of 
position the door can be operated in the usual manner and 
the fastener is not in the way.

Genuine "LangdbnUcme" Mitre Boxes. 

"Langdon Acme" mitre boxes possess all 
the features heretofore embodied in similar styles 
of boxes but with the following improvements: 

The quldes are 1-inch longer thus holding the saw 
steadily when drawn up to its highest capacity. These 
guides are provided with elevators so the saw is held 
stationary above the work when desired. In addition, 
it notches for the positive angles commonly used. 
The acme box has a graduated arc in front with the 
various degrees marked thereon. The index plate 
is furnished with each machine, so there can be no 
mistake in cutting the various degrees. The saw 
can be secured at any intermediate or positive angle 
by means of a small thumb lever in front of box, 
supporting guides for holding work in place. Guides

IVES •IMEPHISTO" EXPANSIVE BIT. 




Clark's and other expansive 
bits. So constructed that the 
cutter will stand a severe strain 
without creeping, springing or 
loosening while boring, which is 
a common fault with other makes of expansive bits. The binding screw 
holds the cutter firmly in place and the small set screw prevents it from 
* being forced in either direction, forming a double locking device so that the 
i cutter cannot move in the slightest degree until screws are released 
i Especially adapted to bore in hard wood. Made to bore any size holes ud 
t to 3 inches, and can be readily adjusted to a 32d of an inch. Stem a single 
, piece drop iorged tool steel. Cutters made of the highest grade of tool steel 
. properly tempered and will hold a good cutting edge.

CARRIER OUTFITS 



For the convenience of our customers we offer our Hay Carrier Outfits complete. These outfits are 
such as our experience has taught us to be best adapted for barns of various lengths. Compare. our 
assortment with others and you will find that we furnish a more complete outfit than any 
other on the market, .. _ • ' ■_! * 

The Carriers are extra heavy and have no springs to get out of adjustment and will therefore last for 
years; in fact, they are practically indestructible. The track is a double steel angle and is furnished in 
10 foot lengths. With each outfit we furnish two 5 foot pieces so the joints will not come at the same 
place, making a stronger and more rigid track than if the lengths were all 10 foot. 

The rope is the best quality long fibre pure manila. We wish to call your particular attention to the 
fact that we furnish longer lengths than usually supplied with Hay Carrier Outfits, 

The outfits as described will meet any requirements in barns of the various lengths specified. To save 
any delay, we strongly advise ordering any of the assortment" just as described; however, if changes must 
be made be sure a-nd allow sufficient amount to cover any 3xtras and thereby avoid any delay which 
will be caused through the necessity of writing you regarding such changes. 

The Hay Rope furnished is f inch diameter. This size is most generally used, i inch or 1 inch rope 
can be used and for which there will be an extra charge as follows:

DOUBLE SWIVEL SLING HAY CARRIER. 
Made of the best 
malleable iron, 
heavy and d u r- 
|able, simple in con- 
struction. The spec- 
ial feature of this 
swivel carrier is that 
often when the barn 
is empty it is not 
necessary to raise a load up to the track, 
for the load can be raised to any point 
desired, and tripped, thereby saving not 
only time but half the distance or more for 
the horses to travel. 

Another excellent feature is that it 
draws the hay or grain direct as the load 
stands, with no twist in the rope.

GASOLINE ENGINE MAGNETO IGNITOR 

The most complete and best constructed magneto type of Ignitor that has ever been 
placed on the market. It is constructed with a special 12-section Laminated Armature 
and solid copper Commutator. The pole pieces are of special soft iron, while the fields 
or permanent magnets are constructed of the best grade of imported Tungsten steel 
(are 8 in number). These Magnets are put through a special aging process to insure 
their giving the highest generating power possible. The bearings are of special bronze 
metal and the shaft is of turned steel. It is equipped with Compression Grease Cups, 
and with combination Carbon and Copper Gauze Brushes so arranged thai they will 
not cut the Commutator. Furnished with a Friction Governing Pulley so that all that 
is necessary to do is to bolt the machine so that the pulley on the ignitor will come in 
contact with the engine fly wheel A turn of the engine is all that is necessary to start 
but we recommend that dry batteries always be used to start the engine and arrange with 
a double throw switch so that the battery can be thrown out as soon as the engine 
is started. It is also recommended that a Spark Coil always be used in conjunction 
with any type of ignitor, as you can get a much hotter and fatter sparic and be sure of your ignition every time. 
We guarantee our gasoline ignitor to bo absolutely satisfactory or it can be returned to us and the full purchase price refunded. 
Shipping weight about 25 pounds. *

able to cut off all current in the 
building by throwing the entrance 
switch in case of fire. 

We recommend their use as motor 
switches. Edison Fuse Plugs up to 30 Amperes can be used in

OUR PRICE 
S^«5 Ret 100 
■ Pounds 



Here Is the greatest bargain ever offered In Barb Wire — absolutely the lowest prices ever before made. We quote Barb Wire both 
galvanized and painted. Some of the galvanized barb wire is not strictly first class, owing to the fact it may have an occasional defect in the galvanizing or 
the galvanizing may be spotted in places, or part of it may be somewhat black, but for every practical purpose it is just as good as regular galvanized barb 
wire. The prices offered are for prompt acceptance and subject to change. The barbs are spaced 3 inches and 5 inches apart. When sending us your 
order be sure to specify which kind you want. The 3 inch is intended for hog wire and the 5 inch for cattle wire. 

It is put up in catch weight reels. By that we mean reels containing anywhere from 95Jx> 120 lbs. to the reel, and therefore it will be 
billed at the prices quoted per 100 lbs., and not by the rod. . , . . D , u _. 

We urge you to get your order in at once, to take advantage of these low prices. It is all 2-pomted Barb Wire. 

All this material is shipped from our main headquarters at Chicago, and our prices are t. o. b. cars Chicago.

ized Hog Fencing, built and made 
of the strongest material possible. 
It is absolutely correct in every 
way and the strongest all around Hog Fencing on 
the market. Do not confuse it with any of the 
cheap priced fencing made of light wire being offer- 
ed, as in buying this fence you get weight to the rod. 
This fencing weighs practically 6 pounds to the rod which ia 
easily from 10 to 20 per cent heavier than a similar fence, and 
furthermore, our price that we are offering this fencing at is 
lower than that asked for the very cheapest kind of fence. Compare 
our weights with others and you will readily see that you are getting a 
bargain, . . , , , ^ TJ ' 

As a matter of fact, if you were to buy the wire m the fence alone, it would cost you 
more than it would for our fence (besides the cost of manufacture) per rod. The stays on 
this fence are spaced 6 and 12 inches apart, which makes a -first class all around Hog and 
Field Fence. This is a Fence built for continuous and lasting service, and i3 the kind of 
a fence every up-to-date owner ought to buy. . . ... K M\ x T ^ j 

This Fence is made of 7 line wires, stays spaced 12 inches apart. Top and bottom wires are No. 9, and 
intermediate wires are No. 11. Stay wires are all No. 12. Put up in 20, 40 and 60-rod rolls.

The 1 91 3 Si vie 44 §anHax" Refrigerator is shown injthe above illustrations. 
■■■■i " i ■■i n — i— — — Special attention is called to the new, artistic, 

rounding corner design. This gives a trim, solid, compact and graceful effect which cannot be 
shown in any illustration. Nothing is spared which wtll give it a handsome appearance, ex- 
treme solidity and long life. The case is made of Solid Oak, attractively paneled as shown. 
Being made of thoroughly seasoned and kiln-dried Btock it cannot warp, twist, or get out of 
shape. The case is tongued and grooved at every joint, and an air-tight fit and absolute insu- 
lation are thereby assured. The oak used is figured white oak, given the new golden tint by 
means of two coats of extra quality coach varnish, finished a high gloss furniture finish. 

White Enamel interior ^ sure to 0T( ^ er a "Sanitax" Refrigerator with a white 
MMMMHi^ m—mmm mmmmm ■ enameled provision chamber. This white enamel con- 
sists of three thick coats, smoothly applied and baked to a hard, flinty consistency. The 
purity, the cleanliness, the economy, and the beauty of this will appeal strongly to every 
housewife. Not only are the bottom, sides and back of the provision chamber white enameled, 
but so are the door lining, drip trap and removable drain pipe. The enamel is applied 
by a special European process and is entirely different from white paint and cold water enamels 
which are bound to chip and crack. This white enamel is clear, dazzling white, elegant to 
behold, and is guaranteed to keep its color. It is entirely without odor and is not absorbent, 
consequently is germ-proof and cannot catch or retain any odor. It contains no poisonous 
substances. It is applied with extreme care over heavy sheet steel and is guaranteed in every 
way. All white enameled boxes have the new non-rusting wire shelves. 

The Circulation » 8 Mly explained on the Introductory page of Refrigerators. 
■>^^nM^«i Be sure and read this carefully, as nothing is of more importance 
than free, unimpeded circulation between the ice and food compartments. The fact that pure 
cold air from the ice reaches every part of the food chamber assures an extremely cold, even 
temperature. The ventilation is scarcely more important than the condensation by means of 
which the impurities, foul odors, etc., are thrown off and carried out All condensing surfaces 
are located inside of the ice chamber and the result is that the stream of air passing from the 
ice is at all times dry. This means that your fruits will _ be luscious and your milk sweet, 
pure and free from taint at all times. 

Out "Sanitax" refrigerators are all sold with the 
understanding, that, if after using one for 30 days, you 
find it imperfect in materials, construction or workmanship, it may be returned to us at our ex- 
pense and your money will be refunded.

Bhows how readily and thoroughly this can be done. Everything in the provision chamber 
can be removed instantly and easily. The shelves are of transversely woven wire, returned 
and rust-resisting. Do not retard free circulation There are no crevices or cracks 
difficult to get at or clean and there are no places for foodstuffs or germs to lodge. The drain 
nipe is shown on the floor in front of the refrigerator. The lower end of this is fitted with a 
removable cap which catches impurities which might not pass the trap below. The handsome 
calvanized Bteel lining of the ice compartment is well shown on the illustration of the top door, 
which is shown open. The heavy ice rack is of the same material, deeply corrugated for con- 
densing purposes. The food and ice compartments are connected with ample air space to per- 
mit absolutely free circulation. . . 
Ahenfai^a f nciff^ffftn is derived from the perfect combination of scientifically 
nnsoilite Mn&Uiaxiun approved non . conductin g materials, which are fully des- 
cribed on the first refrigerator page. The ice-saving properties of these refrigerators have 
been tested in thousands of homes and is not merely theoretical, but practical. The top 
opening, one provision door model shown above, is one of the time-tried, very satisfactory 
styles suitable for most ordinary requirements. We especially urge the purchase of a large 
size refrigerator, as tests prove these to be the most economical in the use of ice. 
Tfi*» H ifrlu/.ifp hinges, lock, name plate, door catch and lid lifter, are made

fitted below with a patent drip cap, which is described and illustrated on the first refrigerator 
page. The baseboard is hinged at the top and swings upwards to permit the removal of 
waste water pan. The casters are of a patent "grip-neck" style, they revolve and slide easily 
and will not fall out when the refrigerator is lifted. Extra strength and attractiveness is afford-

Let "The HUMMER" do your work. It will run the cream separator and washing machine, as well as pump 
water and all other light chores around the house ^nd barn. It is always ready and will run all day with little 
attention. Sold on thirty days' trial and a five-year guarantee on material and workmanship. 

We can furnish any size engine needed for your work. If there is any doubt in your mind as to just what size 
gasoline engine to buy, write us just what machinery you want to run, what work you have to do, giving full 
particulars, and we will tell you just what engine you should buy to get the best results. * * , , ^ ^ " ^ » 




Ideal for Pumping 

The " Old Oaken Bucket " is no 
more. It was replaced years ago by 
the pump and windmill and now the 
windmill is a thing of the past, the 
gasoline engine is taking its place. 
A windmill without wind may be 
a "thing of beauty'* but it is of 
very little help to the farmer during 
the hot, sultry summer day when his 
stock is panting for water and he finds 
it necessary to stand an hour or two 
daily to quench their thirst. A Gaso- 
line Engine, however, is always 
ready in any kind of weather, rain or 
shine, wind or calm. 



Our Binding Guarantee 

THIS GUARANTEE means that every engine we send out 
is guaranteed for FIVE years. Should at any time within 
the first five years you use this "Hummer" engine, you 
find any flaw in the material used in its construction, or if 
you find a defect in any part on account of improper con- 
struction, we will replace this part free of charge at our 
factory. We will also allow you to tiy this engine out on 
your own place, on your own work, for 30 days. If at 
the end of this trial period you do not find it just as 
represented and in perfect working order, notify us at 
once and we will gladly send you shipping instructions 
for its return. We will cheerfully refund money and pay 
freight both ways on any engine not satisfactory. 



Starts Easy 

In putting this engine on the market, 
we have had two distinct points in 
view; first, simplicity; second, easy 
starting. For this reason we have 
made this engine of small bore and 
stroke. It is very often the case when 
the men foDsS are away, then the women 
and children must take care of the 
stock, and the heavy cumbersome 
engines are not fit foii.auch use, no mat- 
ter how reliable they are; it is absolute- 
ly impossible for a woman or a ten 
year old boy to swing a large heavy 
gasoline engine against the compression.

Instantaneous Automatic Water Heater 




The "HARRIS" Gas Heater 

GREATEST OF MODERN INVENTIONS 



Works automatically— just open faucet and gas is turned 
on— close faucet and gas is turned off. 

Furnishes hot water instantaneously— open your faucet and you have hot 
water. No waste of gas— no waste of hot water. Always ready— hot water on 
tan day and night, winter and summer* 



| Price Within Your Reach 



There is now no excuse for your not 
having a constant and inexhaustible supply of hot 
water day and night, winter and summer, by the 
simple act of turning a faucet, flot water is not a 
itixupy but a necessity. Not an inch of gas is 
wasted. Every bit of gas consumed actually goes 
into the water. 



Only the Water Needed is Heated 



You only heat the water you actually need. 
You are not wasting gas by keeping water in a storage 
tank hot all the time. 

You want hot water, but you do not want to 
waste your money. This heater will pay for itself within 
a year's time by the actual saving in the amount of gas 
consumed. 



WHAT THE"H ARRIS" HEA TER MEANS TO YOU 



One by one, modern improvements have 
been supplied to you. This heater is the last word. 
You have thrown away your kerosene lamp and 
now read by gas or electricity. You have furnace 
or hot water heat in place of coal stoves. You have 
a modern bathroom outfit with sanitary plumbing. 
Now add this latest improvement and you will truly 
have all modern conveniences. 

There is no gas wasted with our heater. 
All the heat in every foot of gas goes into the water. 
None is lost by radiation from the sides of the heat- 
er. The jacket is made double with an intermed- 
iate layer of asbestos so that you can place your 
hand on the jacket at any time and it can hardly 
be warmed. 



Simple in Construction ^ 

In order to be really useful, a heater of this 
kind must be simple— so simple that the average person 
can install it, operate it and repair it in case of accident. 
No complicated mechanism, delicate valves or intricate 
contrivances can be allowed. Our heater is reduced to 
bedrock simplicity. There is only one valve. This is 
the valve which controls the water supply and the gas 
supply. When the faucet is opened the water enters 
through the top compartment and its pressure forces 
down the piston rod to which the gas valve is 
attached. The water valve and the gas valve operate to- 
gether. They open and close together. This in a nutation, 
represents the operation of our heater. Nothing could be 
simpler. Adaptable for all kinds of pressure. City pressure 
from 5 to 50 pounds and even gravity pressure. Valve is adjust- 
able to varying pressure by simple turning of screw in. tne rod 
connecting the water and gas shut-off valves. 

Our heater is guaranteed to act instan- 
taneously and to secure a greater amount of heat 
units out of the flame, than any kind of gas heater 
ever manufactured. This has been demonstrated by 
actual test. You can prove it by holding your hand 
over the flue. It will not burn, showing conclusively 
that practically every bit of heat goes into the water. 
Our heater has 90 feet of copper coil, tested under 
350 pounds hydrostatic pressure. The current of the 
water being downwards, protects these coils from being clogged 
Up by sediment. An aluminum baffle pan placed under these coils 
protects the burners from moisture 
or condensation dripping into 
the flame. Every point of possi- 
ble difficulty in connection with 
heaters of this kind has been 
taken into consideration and fully 
provided against.

You can also place your hand on top of the 
exhaust pipe and it will not burn, which shows that all 
the gas you are burning is actually being used and no 
heat is being wasted through the flue. 

The pilot light of our heater is the smallest 
in the world, consuming less than one thousand feet of 
gas per year. We guarantee this heater to furnish two 
gallons of water, raised 70 degrees in temperature in 
one minute, and we also guarantee that our heater fur- 
nishes a gallon of water to every foot of gas used! With 
gas at $1.00 per thousand this would mean 10 gallons of 
hot water for one cent. Where gas is cheaper the cost 
of operation is still further reduced.

plumber required for installing our heater 
Nothing to do but connect a few pipes-

basement, kitchen or bathroom,

ly protects you in case or accident of 
any kind requiring repair to heater. We

valve, burner, jacktt, etc., and guaran- 
tee that the new part will fit accurately.

are exceedingly troublesome, but on our 
heater, you are fully protected,
